Excerpt from introductory lecture:

The novel’s protagonist is Liesel Meminger, a nine-year-old girl who is orphaned when the Nazis persecute her parents for being Communists, and she is placed in a foster home in Molching in 1939. Traumatized by the death of her six-year-old brother during the train trip to Molching, Liesel struggles to adjust to life with her foster parents, Hans and Rosa Hubermann. The Holocaust is underway, and evidence of the Nazis’ twisted ideology and acts of evil permeates daily life in the town. Hans, strong and kind, forges a relationship with Liesel by teaching her to read and remains a source of comfort and moral guidance for her as conditions continue to deteriorate in Molching. Rosa, in contrast, is stern, often hostile, and sometimes abusive, but she loves Liesel too. When the Hubermanns shelter a Jew to save him from the Nazis, Liesel recognizes that Rosa has many redeeming qualities. Through Hans, Liesel develops a love of reading, writing, and a passion for books. Recognizing the power of language, she begins to steal books, becoming “the book thief.”
