When it comes to finding movies, I like to find ones that not only have a great story line, but ones that can give myself and my family an idea of what it was like to live in certain periods of time. One such time is WWII. Like any time of war, the ones who see it all, who see things that no one should ever see, some things they may or may not understand, are the innocent ones, the kids. A war through the eyes of a child is something that many never think about, but it was not until I had first read the diary of a young girl when I was a young girl myself, who experienced hiding from the Nazi’s and the war first hand, that the reality came into view. Recently I was sent a movie, one that takes place during WWII in Germany. The movie is called, “The Book Thief”. In this movie you follow the life of a young girl, who is thrown into Nazi Germany as a orphan, adopted by a loving family, who teach her to not only read, but also teach her some important lessons in life. This young girl, started out, not knowing how to read, and after being taught by her adoptive father, she finds a world within books and writing, where she can escape, even if it is just for a moment. I found this movie to be a very moving one, and it is one I not only enjoyed watching, but one I enjoyed watching with my daughter, who is learning about WWII in school. The Book Thief is available to bring home to share with your own family today!
