Book Reading 2 Discussion Topics Tears of a Tiger begins with a tragic accident--a fatal car crash caused by drinking and driving. The story is then told from the points of view of the group of friends involved.
Liesel and Werner are being taken to the small town of Molching, just outside of Munich, Germany, to live with foster parents Hans and Rosa Hubermann. Werner dies on the train of mysterious causes having to do with poverty, hunger, cold, and lack of medical treatment. Liesel is reluctant to enter the Hubermann house on Himmel Street, but is coaxed by her foster father, Hans, to whom she takes an immediate liking.
She also meets Rudy Steiner, who is soon to be her best friend not to mention her partner in book and food thievery.
This is what inspires him to begin teaching her to read. When Liesel learns to write, she begins composing letters to her mother, but these letters go unanswered.
Finally, we find out that her mother has disappeared. She finds the mound of literature being burned fascinating but super-disturbing.
Now that she can read and write, she has come to see great value in books and words.
When Liesel hears a Nazi spokesman calling for death to communists as well as Jews, a light bulb goes off. The only thing she knows about her father is that he was accused of being a communist. This is a dangerous conflict for a young girl in Nazi Germany.
Hans warns her against voicing her anti-Hitler opinions in public. This conflict helps drive Liesel to steal her second book, The Shoulder Shrug, from the burning pile of books. Now, that son is twenty-two and is hiding from the Nazis.
His name is Max, and Hans is his last hope for survival. When the desperately starving and exhausted young man arrives, Hans and Rosa hide him in their home. Liesel is amazed to see her courage and her softness. Hiding a Jewish person in your home during World War II is one of the bravest and most frightening things a German person could do.
It means a constant state of paranoia for all involved. But, above all, it means friendship for the residents of the Hubermann home Ilsa saw Liesel steal the The Shoulder Shrug. She also pays Rosa to do her laundry.
Everything changes in October of when "The parade of Jews" Hans feels compelled to offer one of the Jewish prisoners a piece of bread and is whipped along with the prisoner by a Nazi guard. Now Hans is desperately afraid the Nazis will search his house and find Max, so he sends Max away that very night.
His house is never searched, and Hans berates himself constantly, waiting to be punished for his mistake. In fact, they are coming for Rudy, who has recently shown himself to be a great student and athlete. The Gestapo wants to take Rudy to a special training school. His parents protest and essentially make a trade.
Rudy stays home, but his father, Alex Steiner, is conscripted into the military and has to leave home. Around this time, Hans is also conscripted, as punishment for giving the Jewish man bread. With Hans and Max gone, Liesel does her best to go on.
