Liesel tells Ilsa, who has suffered for years over the death of her son, to get over it and pictures Ilsa's face as bloodied and battered from this verbal abuse. Liesel is genuinely angered about Ilsa firing Rosa, and does not regret what she said, though she later tells Hans that she is going to hell.

Rudy experiences romantic love for Liesel. Liesel, however, is still working out her feelings for Rudy. Rudy must also contend with bullies as well as being part of the Hitler Youth which he hates.
