Maus I - My Father Bleeds History
I just finished Maus I - My Father Bleeds History by Art Spiegelman. It is another graphic novel. This is a survivor's tale (a true story). It was a very sad book about the Holocaust. The Jews were represented by mice, the Germans were represented by cats and the Poles were represented by pigs. Vladek is Artie Spiegelman's father and he is telling his father's story that his father told him. Vladek had a wife named Anja and they had a very hard time finding places to stay and hide because no one would take them in and the Gestapo kept looking through their hiding places.
I liked this book and recommend this book to kids who are learning the story of the Holocaust.
