After a massive bombing on Himmel Street Liesel survives but sees the dead bodies of Rosa and Hans together with the mangled accordion. After Himmel Street is cleared, Ilsa Hermann and the mayor take Liesel into their home. Liesel lives on in Australia to an old age until the final chapter. 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."
