Rudy's father, a tailor who does not hate the Jews, but was somewhat relieved when the Jewish tailors competing with him were driven out of town. Alex refuses to let Rudy be inducted into an Army training academy and is punished with conscription. Alex is perplexed over Nazi propaganda but fears for the safety of his family. I think this might have been a common sentiment among Germans at the time. After the war, Alex, who has lost his entire family in a bombing raid, reopens his store and is kept company by Liesel.
