Period 3 Only: Bravery and Cowardice
Hans Junior, a Nazi soldier, calls his dad a coward because he doesn’t belong to the Nazi Party. He feels that you are either for Hitler or against him. Consider some of the following questions:
- How does it take courage to oppose Hitler and the Nazi Party?
- There isn’t one coward in the Hubermann household. How do they demonstrate courage?
- So far in the novel, do you consider Rudy to be brave or naive? How about Liesel?
- Is Max’s guilt (on any of a few topics) more a result of his bravery or cowardice?
