How we cite our quotes:
At school, Rudy made a special point of seeking Liesel out during the breaks. He didn't care that others made noises about the new girl's stupidity. (8.47)
In 1933, 90 percent of Germans showed unflinching support for Adolph Hitler. That leaves 10 percent who didn't. Hans Hubermann belonged to that ten percent. (10.9)
Scary statistic, especially for Hans and people like him. Do you think Death's figure is accurate? Where might you go to verify his information?
I just wish I was like Jesse Owens, Papa. (9.45)
Rudy's identification with people who Hitler despises, in this case, black people, is natural, not courageous. But, to maintain it as he grows older will take courage.
