She steals it as a memory of her brother, though she is illiterate. With help from school and Hans Hubermann, she learns to read. Over a year later, she steals an abandoned book from a nazi book burning. The mayor's wife notices, and later invites Liesel in her library. When the mayor's wife fires Liesel's mother, Liesel starts to steal the books from her…
I've always wanted to have this kind of photoshoot! a white dress in a burnt forest with smoke swirling around... eerily beautiful. Except, you know, without the burning book and instead a candle or lantern or something haha :)
book burning memorial, via Flickr. In the center of Bebelplatz, a glass window showing rows and rows of empty bookshelves. The memorial commemorates the night in 1933 when 20,000 "anti-German" books were burned here under the instigation of Goebbels. There's a plaque nearby that says something like "Where they burn books, they will also burn humans in the end."
