Art Spiegelman

This book tells the story of a Jewish survivor of Hitler’s Europe, and his son, a cartoonist trying to come to terms with his father’s story and the death of his mother. This book follows the story of his father’s experiences in Poland and Auschwitz, as well as that of his entire family. It tells of the romance between his father and mother during this time and their struggles to stay together despite the circumstances. This book shows the relationship between the author and his father throughout. This graphic novel portrays the Jews as mice and the Nazis as cats during the Holocaust.

This book was very powerful and I like that you see the relationship between Spiegelman and his father throughout.

People who find it hard to read Holocaust stories will struggle no more, this is the only WWII graphic novel I have ever seen.
