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 II is the continuation of Maus I and follows his father as he survives the concentration camp and is at last reunited with his wife. A touching story of survival!
