Death himself narrates the WWII story of Liesel Meminger, a young German girl who survives Nazi Germany while protecting a Jewish friend from the Holocaust.

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.

In the reproducible twelve lessons have students analyze tone and atmosphere, review vocabulary and research word origins, interpret thematic passages, study narration and point of view, write in journals, conduct interviews, participate in critical analysis, and connect with the novel through related prose and poetry. Grades 9–12. 102 pages.literaturecurriculumunits centerforlearning socialstudies
