Factual error: This film takes place in the north eastern USA. During the beautiful scene with the large black bird soaring above, they added a close up of an Andean Condor. The Andean Condor only lives in South America; Peru, Argentina, Chile, etc.
Other mistake: Liesel goes to live with Papa and Mama in 1937, and starts attending school. About half way through the movie, 1942, Mama goes to school to tell her that Max was okay. Liesel is still sitting in the same chair and with the same teacher as in 1937, and the kids around her have not changed a bit.
