    The Standover Man has both words and pictures, and Death recreates it exactly in the text. In his book Ma x is a bird, the story is about all the people that have stood over him during his life, ending with Liesel watching him sleep, and then the two trading dreams and becoming friends. The last page is a picture of the basement, with the words painted on the wall next to a framed . Of all the things to save him." --Death, Part Three () I like this quote because even though it is a book about Hitler's struggles, Hitler in an indirect way is saving a Jew. He is indirectly doing it by selling his book to so many people that really anyone can get it.
