Welcome to Harry Potter Answers. What would you like to know?

Lily sacrificed herself and therefore put the most powerful protection possible upon Harry so that when Harry was hit by the killing curse it rebounded on Voldemort, destroying his body and breaking a part of his soul which attached to Harry's soul as it made the lightning scar on his forehead. Harry also places this protection upon the remaining fighters of the Battle of Hogwarts at the end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows that is why Neville breaks free and survives when the sorting hat on his head is set alight and why the curse placed upon the survivors to make them silent doesn't bind. This is also caused because the elder wand dosen't actually belong to Voldemort. Molly Weasley also survives the duel with Bellatrix because of this and the fact that Harry cast a Protego charm before Voldemort could cast his curse.
