Liesel looks at the pictures and does not understand the dark sarcasm. One picture says "Not the Fuhrer - the conductor!" Another shows a couple standing atop a mountain of dead bodies looking at a swastika Sun; one says, "Isn't it a lovely day..." Curious, Liesel sees these two pages and is deeply frightened by them.
