In Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief, Liesel Meminger shows that stupidity can easily be mistaken for courage. She exemplifies this when she tries to read in front of her class, when she steals, and when she and Rudy give bread to the Jews. Leisel thought it would be courageous, to read in front of the class, but ended up being called names for trying.
Books are seen as evil in this society so the new job of firemen was to burn these banned books to promote world peace.

Hans and Rosa began to hide a Jewish man, Max Vandenburg, in their basement until Hans made a mistake that forced Max to leave before the authorities came and found him. Alex Steiner, Rudy’s father, also made a mistake that threatened the authority of the Nazi party and he and Hans were drafted into the military. Hans broke his leg and was allowed to come back home to Molching. Late one night, while Liesel was in their basement writing an autobiography, the poorer part of Molching was bombed, where she happened to live and everyone was killed, except Liesel. First of all, the book provided me with many, somewhat random out of context, but interesting facts about what went on outside of the fictional story of Liesel Meminger.
How could any one man convince another to follow his personal belief? More importantly how could one man convince an entire country to go against the ideas of morality and exterminate a group of people children and adult alike for the sole purpose of him disliking them. Sounds like an outrageous atrocity that any one man could do such thing, but as history shows, Hitler had the powerful words that allowed this to happen. Since his birth in the small Austrian border of Braunau in 1889(BOOK) Hitler had a tough life, He went from living with his parents to living on an orphans pension(BOOK) by painting pictures on postcards. He blamed everyone around him for his own failings, when he would get rejected time and time again from the art school that he oh so badly wanted to get into he blamed it first on his mother, then on his father, and then on the Jews.
Kristallnatch the prelude to the Holocaust, kristallnatch was an open attack on the Jewish community in Germany, named for the broken glass of the windows of Jewish businesses destroyed in that night.

On 7 November 1938, Grynszpan a Jew who had escaped to France shot Von Rath a secretary of the German Embassy in France for denying help to Grynszpan's parents who were deported to Poland.
So the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and he gave them over to plunderers, who plundered them; and he sold them into the power of their enemies round about, so that they could no longer withstand their enemies. God was disappointed because he had already warned Israel of their wrong doing and they disobeyed him. So he had to revoke his promise to them. NKJV Holy Bible (Judges 2: 12&14) Now that they understood how bad they hurt God, they cried out to the Lord for deliverance…for
Later, when the family takes in a Jewish man, Max Vanderburg, and hides him away, Leisel shares her love of words with him, too. Desperate for new reading material, Liesel, with the occasional help of her friend Rudy, steals books from a Nazi book-burning pile, that the wife of the mayor just so happens to see. The Mayors wife, with a shared love of reading, introduces Liesel to her amazing private library that Liesel will soon, frequently sneak into and take from. All seems well, but when the Allied bombs begin to fall on their street, things get even worse and death begins to close in on Liesel, her family and her friends. The Book Thief is a very memorable story.
Then when WW II came around the Jewish people were targeted by the Nazis. They were stripped of all their rights and basically became slaves to the Nazis party. The Nazis tried to rid Europe of the Jewish people and if they had their way eventually the whole world would be free of this religious group.
