I have recently read the graphic novel Maus, the story of a Jewish man called Vladek Spiegelman and his wife Anja during the holocaust. What makes this interesting is the fact that there are no humans in this book, technically, you see to show what it was like Art Spiegelman (son of Vladek and Anja) portrays the Nazis as cats and the Jews as Mice. It tells of thier struggles, lots of their family killed (including their son), having to move around constantly because the Poles (portrayed as pigs), will not just hide them for free. The book also tells the story of Vladek talking to his son about how unhappy he is in his new marriage (Anja commited suicide).Image
