Their friendship, however, does not last very long and Liesel soon turns to thievery. To steal books from Ilsa’s library, Liesel waited for the right moment when she could gain access through “the open window that breathed a slice of air in” (286). By gaining this access, Liesel is exposed to words that eventually save her life from a bombing caused by the Fuhrer. Like Liesel, Hans Hubermann also had an incident with a window of the Nazi Party. It all started when the Jews were beginning to be terrorized.
The titles of the books that Liesel steals all deal with something that is related to her life or something related to the situation she’s in, which make them very significant. Stealing books from the mayor's house leads to a friendship with the mayor's wife. Every time Leisel stole a book, Ilsa Hermann knew about it. The library was really Ilsa’s not the mayor’s.

At the very start of the novel, the importance of symbolism is established through Liesel’s first book, “The Gravedigger’s Handbook”. She steals it from the cemetery ground after her brother’s burial, even though she cannot read or understand a single word of it. Soon after the burial, Liesel is sent to a foster family in Himmel Street by her mother. At this point, “The Gravedigger’s Handbook” is used to heighten the emotional intensity of comforting the pain and sorrow Liesel feels about her brother’s death and the abandon by her mother.
