Book Review: Maus by Art Spiegelman


WWII is never an easy subject to learn about. The things that happened in Europe cannot be described in words alone. That is why I love this book. Being a graphic novel allows the story to take on a whole new dimension, where the images the words are meant to invoke are right there on the page. Spiegleman also puts enough humor into the book as he is showing you his strange relationship with his father to break the tension and give you a break from the horror. If I needed to teach about the Holocaust to a young person, this is the perfect way to do it.
