The Book Thief

Setting




































Sumeet Singh


This image from the story is significant to the setting because it shows how easily someone can die at such a young age. This is due to lack of medication and free hospitalization at the time. This made it harder for most people to survive and have a large lifespan, this is very unlike modern day. It also allows the reader to see how poor families were forced to live in Nazi Germany. 


Liesel's Brother's Death


This image from the story is significant to the setting because shows the effort that the Nazis took to make sure that the Jews were never put seen to be put in a good light. This was so that people don't question the fact that they are capturing and sometimes killing Jews and people don't try to go against the Nazis because of it.

The Burning of Books by the Nazis


This image from the story is significant to the setting because it shows the need for Jews to hide from the Nazis at the time, so they don't get captured or killed. This shows the length they have to go to simply stay alive in a place where they are not wanted.

Max's Arrival at the Hubermanns

Max's Near Death Experience


This image from the story is significant to the setting because it shows the living conditions in which a hidden Jew would have to live in, in order to attempt to survive, and not be captured or killed by the Nazis. They could die living in these conditions, similar to how Max almost did living in the Hubermann's cold basement.


Hans Being Sent Off to War


This image from the story is significant to the setting because it shows the desperation at the time for the Nazis for more people to join the Nazis. This is shown because Hans clearly doesn't support the Nazi party. This is also shown a few days before he was sent off, when he feed some Jews that were on their way to concentration camps.

The Bombing of Munich


This image from the story is significant to the setting it shows how dangerous Germany currently in that time. This shows their enormous conflict with The Allies and how it affects the lives of regular civilians such as Liesel. All of Liesel's family and friends die because of this.
