Introduction How they built their relation ship upon words How literature saved them both and the implications of this How they both found solace in literature
At the beginning of Max’s stay in the Huberman’s household Liesel denied Max’s very existence. “Preferring to believe that life could go on as normal” “Liesel was initially afraid of Max. “Whats wrong, is their a monster down there?” “The idea of getting frightened by the new visitor both frightened and enthused her” Max feels the same way about Liesel. “She’s a lovely girl really, no need to be afraid” The first words spoke between the two relate to literature, Mein Kampf “Is – Is it a good book” “It’s the best book I’ve ever read, it saved my life” The two books Max writes for Liesel, “The standover man”, “The word shakers”
This is a monster. Well, a monster to Germans in the Nazi Era. “What's wrong, there isn’t a monster down there is there” - Hans Huberman Jew German
How literature saves both of them and the implications of this Max Liesel “ Mein Kampf” saves Max’s life by offering a way into the Huberman’s household. “Mein Kampf – Of all things to save him” Whilst writing her own book her home is destroyed. She survives. “She clung desperately to the words who had saved her”
The way they find solace in literature Liesel finds a way to be happy again – through stealing books. And her midnight classes with Hans Huberman. “Little did she know, but those “Midnight”” classes would be the happiest times of her life” Liesel and Rudy are brought even closer together through their affixation with theft. And in particular their theft of books. “This” Rudy declared, “Is the good life” “Only in my writings could a Jew find such a way to express himself” - Max
