Literacy in The Book Thief: Complicated Matters of People, Witnessing, Death

dc.contributor.authorLee, Grace
dc.description.abstractIn lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Evidently adolescent Holocaust literature explores a variety of themes, such as coming of age during the time of Nazi Germany either as a Jew or as a Gentile helping Jews, the fact that there were Germans who had ties with Jews but did not take any action to help and stood by passively, and also the terrible experiences the Jews were suffering under the Nazi rule in concentration camps. The one theme adolescent Holocaust literature seems to fail to explore is how literacy helps those who are in Nazi Germany and the Jews. One such text that explores the theme of literacy and the power of literacy for Gentiles and Jews in Nazi Germany is The Book Thief.en_US
