Stealth

This poster is a new book cover I made for The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.“I don’t believe this,” the sister muttered. “It can’t be,” because sure enough, when Liesel stepped forward to show her hands” (Zusak, 54). The hand symbolizes Liesel and her act of learning how to read because when she was in school she was told to read a book, but didn’t knew how to read it, so she said a paragraph in “The Grave Digger’s Handbook”. However it became a thing to tease about amongst the kids, so she had to physically fight a guy named Ludwig Schmeikl and the hand symbolizes the dirty hand after the fight. “Steadily, the room shrank, till the book thief could touch the shelves within a few small steps. She ran the back of her hand along the first shelf, listening to the shuffle of her fingernails gliding across the spinal cord of each book” (95). This clearly represents the theme of this poster because it is designed to explain learning how to read. Liesel had to do laundry for the mayor, but she stole a book from the mayor’s house. She was always scared if the mayor’s wife who gives out the laundry would scold her. Instead the mayor’s wife brought out stack of books for her and let her look around the room full of books in her house. The poster clearly explains how Liesel was enthusiastic to learn how to read.

Power of Love

Power of love is stronger than any power in the world. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak clearly depicts the theme love. War, death and loss have caused Liesel and other characters in the book go through certain traumas. Love is seen as an agent of change and freedom in this book. Liesel overcomes her traumas by learning to love and being loved by her foster family. “To Liesel the smell is wonderful; it’s the smell of friendship, and she could find it in herself, too.” (Zusak, 59). This quote clearly delineates the fact that Liesel is feeling the smell of friendship with Hans Huberman. The smell of cigarettes and kerosene. Gives the feeling of intimacy by just stating cigarettes and kerosene. Cigarettes representing the moment when Hans Huberman feels relaxed, and smell of kerosene which stands for Liesel and Hans Huberman learning how to read and write down in the basement where there is no electricity. “A DEFINITON NOT FOUND IN THE DICTIONARY. Not leaving: an act of trust and love, often deciphered by children” (37). This quote also clearly supports the theme because when Liesel first went to her foster family’s house her mother and brother was dead. At a young age this made her a trauma, so every night she urinated on her bed. Every time she woke up in the middle of the night Hans Huberman was there sitting on her bed. In front of her floated an another bed which was her brother’s bed. The smell of cigarette comforted Liesel which meant security and safety for her. The Book Thief includes a lot of themes that could be described and supported with numerous quotes but love is definitely the biggest factor that has affected the story in many different ways.

Leader who dreamed for “Aryan” race

Leader who chased for “Aryan” race, who starved for the superior race for the fellow Germans. In the book Adolf Hitler there were many statements that Hitler was a leader who longed for the superior race of the German people. His life was fulfilled with unhuman and infamous events. He was born in Austria. Hitler has lost his Dad when he was 13 and decided to be an artist. After 5 years when he was 18 he had lost his mother. Before long he started to go to the library and self-studied about human race theory and anti-Judaism theory. “In 1936, Hitler and his regime muted their Anti-Semitic rhetoric and actions when Germany hosted the Winter and Summer Olympic Games, in an effort to avoid criticism” (Fest,103). This quote clearly explains the main idea of the entire book because Hitler knew what he had done wrong and he tried to hide it so other people in the world won’t know what he was doing. He was too scared to do so, because he knew he had massacred 6 million people in his entire life, but his voice got louder and louder every day and threatened people to follow his orders. When people are scared their mind is not normal. Also how could Hitler bring back the important lives of those 6 million Jewish people?  “Nazis and their collaborates were responsible for the deaths of at least one million noncombatants, including about six million Jews, representing two-thirds of the Jewish population in Europe.” (143). This quote clearly responds to the question I asked before. The Nazis are the ones who are responsible of the 6 million Jewish lives. The leader who dreamt for Aryan race has demolished and this situation should never happen again.

The Historic Leader’s Life

The leader who wanted aryan race, infamous of the holocaust. Adolf Hitler. He was known as the leader who wanted superior race and thought his decision was always the right decision. “In 1936, Hitler and his regime muted their Anti-Semitic rhetoric and actions when Germany hosted the Winter and Summer Olympic Games, in an effort to avoid criticism” (Fest,103). This quote shows that Hitler was a leader who didn’t wanted the public to know what he was doing during the time because if that words spread out he would be criticized and the fame of himself would drop down. “Nazis and their collaborates were responsible for the deaths of at least one million noncombatants, including about six million Jews, representing two-thirds of the Jewish population in Europe.” (143). This quote delineates that Hitler and the Nazis were responsible of their killing of the Jewish people and the other innocent deaths of the noncombatants. The leader who wanted aryan race, hiding the dark truth behind the people’s eye, genocide of one specific race.
