Acclaimed as "the most affective and successful narrative ever done about the Holocaust" ('Wall Street Journal') and "the first masterpiece in comic book history" ('New Yorker'), 'Maus' is the story of Vladek Spiegelman, a Jewish survivor of Hitler's Europe, and his son, a cartoonist, coming to terms with his father's story.
Against the backdrop of guilt brought by survival, they stage a normal life of small arguments and unhappy visits. An astonishing retelling of the twentieth-century's grisliest news, 'Maus' studies the bloody paw-prints of history and tracks its meaning for all of us.
