Liesel and Rudy decide to trip Otto after a month of watching him. Every Friday, Otto brings the priests food. Rudy and Liesel pour water onto the road to make him reck his bike. They steal the priest's food, and take it to the other hungry kids.
After triping Otto, they share their food with the other kids. Then, Arthur gives them chesnuts before he moves as a goodbye gift. Rudy and Liesel go door to door and sell the chesnuts. They make enough money to buy more than one piece of candy.
While Liesel and Rudy are stealing a young Jew, named Max is trying to escape capture after staying in a storage closet for an extended amount of time. He is coming to live with the Hubermanns after Hans learned he was his friend's son. Max is traveling by train to get there.
