Maus is interesting not only for the sake of the survival story Vladek has to tell, but for the frame that surrounds it. Seeing Vladek's relationship to his son, and the lasting effects of the Holocaust on his character make this story richer and more layered. It isn't only about survival or violence, but about love and family (and the damage both can do.)
