THE BOOK THIEF
Through Liesel, viewers witness Nazi rallies, propaganda films and posters, Hitler Youth, conscription, book burning, anti-Jewish pogroms, and the danger of opposing a police state. The prize-winning 2013 movie stays true to Markus Zusak’s "mesmerizing and original" novel (School Library Journal), which is available separately, as are reproducible activities to help students analyze the book and its historical context. Directed by Brian Percival.
“…[captures] the epic sadness and the moments of pure, soul-soaring bliss in the book.”
—Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
