She hides  The Grave Digger's Handbook  underneath her mattress. For her, the book signifies the  last time she saw her mother and her brother. School is a struggle, because Liesel cannot read or  write. She is placed with the younger children and feels ashamed. She also begins her enrollment in the BDM:  Bund Deutscher Mädchen , Band of German Girls. They  meet from 3 to 5 on Wednesdays and Saturdays and learn skills like bandage rolling, sewing, and  marching, and perform their  heil  Hitlers. Liesel goes with Rosa to pick up and deliver the wealthy families' washing and ironing. Rosa doesn't  like her customers and berates them to Liesel. She particularly dislikes the mayor and his wife, who  live at 8 Grande Strasse. She sends Liesel to the door, and a woman in a bathrobe answers and  hands Liesel the washing. Rosa says that the woman is crazy.
