During Markus Zusak’s book we observe the beauty of humans at many times. One of the most beautiful things a human does is when Max, the jew the Hubermanns are hiding from the nazis, gives Liesel a book that he made himself.

His father put Elie in a school that practiced Judaism at age three. By the time Elie was fifteen World War II broke out and he spent most of his time with his former care giver named Moshe praying and crying about the prosperity and war going on in the world.

Moshe told him about the many concentration camps that were being built and tried to warn Elie to tell his family and to run away with him before the Nazi’s came and took their family. Elie tried to tell his parents but they did not want to leave because they had a good income from the grocery store that they owned and they liked the schools in the area.
