Reinhold Zucker in The Book Thief

By Markus Zusak

Reinhold Zucker

Reinhold Zucker is another bully, a young man serving with Hans on the air raid clean-up crew. Zucker doesn't like Hans, because Hans beats him at cards. So, he trades seats with Hans on the truck back to camp one day, just to try to make Hans do something. The bus ends up rolling multiple times, and Zucker is the only casualty.
