Art Spiegelman's Moving Holocaust Narrative
Maus is the story of Vladek Spiegelman, a Jewish survivor of the Holocaust, and his son Art, a cartoonist who tries to come to terms with his relationship with his father, his father's terrifying story of survival, and history itself-all in a comic-book format. Maus I moves between Poland and New York. It is the father's account of how he and his wife survived Hitler's Europe, as well as the author's relationship with his father.
