The Book Thief is thrown onto a garbage truck along with other rubble. Death climbs onto the truck and takes it.
After Liesel dies, Death walks down the street with her and shows her The Book Thief, which Death has kept all these years. Death says that it read Liesel's book many times. Liesel asks if Death could understand it; Death does not respond. Death wants to ask her how the human race can be "so ugly and so glorious," but does not. Instead Death tells her the "only truth" it "truly knows": "I am haunted by humans."
