it was amazing
bookshelves: young-adult-lit

This is a great story made with cats and mice representing the Jews and the Nazi Party from pre World War II to the intense conclusion. The story however follows Vladek Spiegelman, a survivor of the terrors of internment camps during the war. The amazing thing is how the story is told is unlike any method internment camps have been described. The comic is highly emotional and makes you understand the tragedy and wrongs of the holocaust.
I cannot believe of all the holocaust novels I have read, this one (dare I say) moved me most. I was more than moved by the power this book has and it made me question some prior thoughts of the holocaust, because I have not read many firsthand accounts. This brought me to some gut-wrenching thoughts and helped me appreciate their suffering and the significance of the events in WWII. Very touching and very realistic.
