    Answer and explanation:

    In Markus Zusak's novel "The Book Thief", the theme of individual identity vs. conformity to social expectations is explored. The characters have strong beliefs concerning humanity, kindness, and morals, which prevents them from being easily influenced by society. They refuse to accept Nazi ideologies of racial superiority and, in the main character Liesel's new home, a Jewish man is hidden and taken care of so that Nazis won't take him to a camp. Liesel and her new "parents" are very much aware of the risk they are taking, but they believe it is worth risking your own life to save someone else's.
