The accordion, the swastika, the Nazi Flag, Hitler, Colors, and books (these are specific books that Liesel reads)

One Sybol is the Accordian. The accordion starts off as a symbol of hope and comfort. When Liesel begins reading to the residents of Himmel Street during the air raids, she feels like she's giving them what Hans gives her when he plays the accordion – distraction, comfort, and hope.When Liesel finds the accordion among the wreckage of Himmel Street after Hans has died, it is a symbol of great loss, but one which carries much of her story within it. It is yet another symbol of the novel's argument that literature, music, and other arts can provide sustenance in times of great suffering.
