One of the important lessons of the Harry Potter books is that while death is an unpleasant reality, death itself is not a problem - but the fear of death is.

Voldemort's whole power comes from the fear of death. Both Voldemort's own (Tom Riddle is terrified of dying), and the fear of death which the Deatheaters can discover in others.

When Lily Evans faces down Voldemort to protect the infant Harry - when Lily loses her fear of Death - Voldemort receives his first great wound.

Then, as the Boy Who Lived grows, Harry inspires those around him to lose their fear of death, and finally conquers his own - marking the end of Voldemort's reign.

Dumbledore is the first of the books' major characters to disregard death on his route to conquering Voldemort. But Dobby also has learned that there are things which are more important than mere existence. Even a house-elf has discovered reserves of courage which most of the officers at the Ministry of Magic are still too frightened to look for.

Dobby got killed because he was defending Harry and his friends. He was killed when Bellatrix Lestrange threw her knife at he and Harry's friends while Apparating with them-and the knife struck poor Dobby the House Elf in the chest.
