In my opinion, I believe that they are so different that they act as foil characters to each other. She is also aggressive and has a much brusquer manner in the way she acts. This is shown when Rosa forces a screaming and crying Liesel to bathe, roughly pushing her into the tub and fiercly scrubbing her from head to toe.
It is in this fashion that I was extremely taken aback by surprise by the irony in her role since mothers usually play the patient and caring guardians. However, this is not the case with Rosa. She also never hesitates to beat Liesel with whatever object lies nearest to her person whenever her foster daughter exhibits behavior which she deems inappropriate.
Finally, in the Hubermann household, Rosa is in charge of the more domestic tasks such as washing, ironing, cooking and watching Liesel.
He also has eyes described as being silvery and filled with kindness and is much calmer and quieter.
In fact it is he who manages to coax Liesel to release her grip on their iron gate and car door when she refuses to enter her new home. He is patient and caring and is the one who teaches Liesel how to read and write and comforts his foster daughter when she awakes crying from frequent nightmares.
However, despite their differences, Hans and Rosa do have some similarities. For example, although both parents show their affection in different ways, both love Liesel with all their hearts and go out of their way to make her happy.
Evidence of this is when Rosa sacrifices what little money she makes from her washing and ironing job to buy Liesel two books for her birthday, despite the family having to deal with money troubles.
Hans also shows his love for Liesel by teaching her the art of literacy even though he is tired everyday from his job. Together, they are also compassionate to those of Jewish descent and both Hans, and surprisingly Rosa who dislikes change and is never known to have a kind side, agree to hide Max in their basement.
Although both of them have dropped out of school at a young age, Hans in grade four and Rosa in grade three, both appear to be very knowledgeable and educated.
This quote is significant to me because it demonstrates that although two people can be very different, they are still capable of feeling intense love for one another and can share some similarities although they might not be too obvious. This quote is significant to the novel because it shows that Rosa and Hans are foil characters for one another early on in the story and adds a sense of humorous irony to the plot.
I can connect this situation to the world through the fact that Hans and Rosa are able to put aside their differences in order to save Max from Jewish persecutors.Full text of the Civil Code of the Philippines [Republic Act No.
