5 Paragraph Jane Schaffer Essay Outline Response to Literature I. Introduction paragraph a. Hook: The year is 1942 in the small town of Mulching, Germany, a suburb of the Nazi headquarters in Munich. Death awaits old and young souls alike waiting for the dawn of war. Struggle was upon the living, and travesty was upon the dead who will fight for the wrong things. b. Title, Author, Genre: The Book Thief, Markus Zusak, Fiction c. Brief overview of story/text: Young Liesel Meminger was uneducated from the start. Forced to live with a family of strangers, and to idolize the one man she distrusted the most, without understanding herself, she was pushed to find strength in herself, through books, knowledge, Max, Hans, and Rudy, and to overcome her life’s misfortunes. d. Assertion/Thesis Statement: Although Liesel Meminger faced travesty during this time period, there were other people that faced worse hardships during this era, such a Max and many other Jews alike from this time. If it hadn’t been for the rising of Adolf Hitler, Liesel may not have been the focus of the story at all; better yet she wouldn’t be the book thief. II. Body Paragraph #1 a. Topic Sentence: During this time period of the Holocaust, Liesel, like many other Germans who were part of the minority in not following Hitler, had faced hardships and misunderstanding as to how there were this many followers. In comparison to Max Vandenburg, Liesel may have actually had it easy. Max was a Jew, which is basically a sign on your back that says “Kill me, torture me.” This accurately portrays the majority of Jews during Hitler’s Third Reich.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
