Maus

It's comic book, but I decided to put it here. I don't think that fans of Dragon Ball would be interested in.

Subject: in short - Holocaust

Maus by Art Spiegelman is the story of author's father, Polish Jew. In my opinion it's great picture of world war II. The form is very interesting:

Jew showed as mouse
German hunting for Jews - cat
Polish as pig - didn't use to hunt for Jews

I relise that not everyone like it, but noone can ignore it. It arouse great emotion, from sadness to furious.

I recommend it to everyone.

I never got around to reading it myself, but I've stumbled across it quite a few times during my study. it should be terrific. a new way of approaching holocaust, even though approaching holocaust, by some, is meant to be impossible.

Just after reading the first volume I think it's absolutely brilliant. Whips out each and every superhero/anime type comic, throws it far away and locks up in a dark, unpopular place where they all should belong. The very first comic book I've read that's carrying such a great pack of emotion, intelligence and pure history. Shows the subject bothering me the most - holocaust and the effects it had on people. Wladyslaw Spiegelman was a great man, as everyone who somehow survived WW2 without betraying their own benefactors.

Simply genius, I highly reccommend

That was the old me before I got beaten by the system. While looking for that thread i found one where YOU shut me down and ticked me off. Quite a thrill I can tell you.

Lots of libraries carry maus these days - but it's a keeper so your own copy wouldn't be a waste of hard-earned.
