This book is a graphic novel. It is written by Art Spiegelman as he interviews his Jewish father's experiences in Nazi Germany. The Jews are mice, the Germans are cats, and the Poles are pigs. The story is compelling, and is made less revolting, (If that is possible) by the de-humanizing, (pictorially) of the groups. It is an easy, quick read, but it will have great impact. For those who want to understand the holocaust and don't want to slog through some of the many long volumns out there...pick this one up.

You can tell that it was written by a man, because he has a map showing the major locations in Poland, as well as a map of part of New York, even though they aren't absolutely necessary. I would say that telling the story via cartoons gives a different perspective, although it isn't lighthearted at all.

Very well done. An unusual book that blends cartoons and history. Emotionally moving without being horrific.

Part 1 of two part graphic novel series. Spiegelman tells the story of his parents during the Holocaust and he also tells the story of his relationship with his father. Very moving!
