Munich is a city in Germany and the capital of Bavaria.  

World War II Edit

Molching is localized in the outskirts of Munich. In 1941, residents of Molching could hear British bombing in Munich. There is also a train station in Munich, through which Liesel Meminger and Max Vandenburg went to Molching. Throughout the book, there are several references to Munich being the birthplace of Nazism and how this makes the situation of hiding Max even more complicated.
