Despite the shopkeeper being a Hitler fanatic, she makes everyone say "heil Hitler", Rudy and Liesel are able to get a piece of mixed candy. The candy is too hard to split so each take turns sucking on it. This scene is one of the few child like scenes of innocence and contentment in the book. Even Death comments, "The day had been a great one, and Nazi Germany was a wondrous place."
