Travel by Train  Edit

Werner Meminger, Liesel's younger brother, died in January 1939 when he and her sister were put up for adoption after his father abandons them. He did not make it to Molching, where they would be fostered by the Hubermanns, dying on the train trip of pneumonia, partially due to the poverty of his/Liesel's original family. In his funeral, Liesel found a copy of The Gravedigger's Handbook on the ground. He was 6-years old when he died.
