Quote #1

You are going to die. (1.6)

It might be unnerving to hear Death addressing us so plainly. But he's not really telling us anything we don't know. Rather, he's expressing his vision of humans as sharing a common identity in our mortality.

Quote #2

Kommunist (6.6)

That's German for Communist, as you can infer. The Communist Party was a legitimate political party in Germany with sizeable membership. Communists were definitely against Hitler and the Nazis and therefore would suffer a squashing. Although the facts are murky on this topic, Liesel's family is punished because of her father's identity as a Communist.

Quote #3

He was not the junior misogynistic type of boy at all. (8.23)

Rudy is just too loveable. Misogyny, dislike of females, is a good character for any guy not too have, whatever the age. We like that this is part of his identity.
