The Book Thief

Are Eliezer Weisel (Night) and Liesel Meminger (The Book Thief) more similar or more different?

This is a two book question so if you haven't read Night, then it will be difficult. Also an explanation of how and why using their feelings,thoughts,morals,and actions. Thank you.

I think both have courage and loyalty. Liesel has the luxury of being German while Eliezer is Jewish. They both struggle against the Nazis but Elie's struggle is much more visceral and scarring on a daily basis. Liesel does struggle against the Nazis but she does so in a much more subtle way. She looks like the perfect "German girl" which the Nazis liked. Elizer was simply just another expendable Jew.
