Storyboard Text

  • The Memingers Get on the Train
  • The Grave Diggers Handbook
  • Werners Death
  • No, wake up Werner. Please, please, Werner. No, don’t leave me Werner. Not now. No, please, no.
  • Werner's Burial & Events Afterword
  • Here Lies Werner
  • The  Memingers get on the train. Liesel and Werner's mother had to give them away to a new foster family for she couldn't take care of them anymore.  Later in the book  Liesel finds that her mother was a communist, the cause of the Meminger children's abandonment.
  • The Speech Before the Book Burning
  • Death enters the train.  Werner's body lays lifelessly as his eyes stare blankly at the ceiling. Liesel bends down at his side to try and wake him up, it is no use. Liesel and Werner's mother stares carelessly into the distance, not even flinching at the sight of her son's dead body on the train floor.
  • The Book Burning
  • Liesel and her mom get off the train at the nearest spot and decided to burry Werner there. It is snowing and the ground is covered in white powder. The gravediggers dig the hole,  place Werner in it,  and fill it back in. The pair start to leave but then one drops a book on the ground. It is the grave digger's handbook.  Feeling as if this is the only piece of her brother Liesel has, she picks it up and takes it with her.
  • The Second Book Stolen
  • I hope no one sees me.
  • The Mayor (who is also a huge supporter of the Nazis) gives a speech about how wonderful the Führer is and how they are righting all of historys wrongs. 
  • Someone lights the books on fire and they begin to glow. The reason for this is the Nazis don't want any piece of history to contradict their beliefs that the Jews were bad and that they had started the war. Burning books was one way to do this.
  • The Second Book Stolen:   Liesel finds an unburnt book at the bottom of the book burning pile. It's the Shoulder Shrug, she picks it up and blows on it. It cools, and she shoves it in her shirt. The book keeps her warm and then starts heating up, it gets too hot, it burns her. She rushes home and puts down the book. Some of the pages are crisp and burnt, yet still readable.
