The Search

As a girl, Esther escaped from the Nazis and survived by going into hiding in the countryside. Her parents were not so lucky. As she recounts her experience as a Jewish girl living in Amsterdam to her grandson Daniel and his friend Jeroen, she tells them what she knows: they were sent to a concentration camp and died there.

For decades, she has wondered about the details of her parents' last few days. Now, with Daniel's help, she embarks on a search to discover what happened to them during the last months of their lives. After tracking down an old friend who now lives in Israel, Esther finally learns the shocking story of how her parents met their fates at Auschwitz. This powerful graphic novel refuses to shy away from the horrors that faced even those who survived this terrible time, and captures the struggles of those left with nothing to help them remember the people they loved.

Description

"Evocatively written and deftly illustrated, this graphic novel about the Holocaust might be one of the best since Maus . . . Clear and concise explanations depict the struggles and the horrors of the time. Heuvel holds little back from his audience, presenting his facts starkly through Tintin-like illustrations that depict the atrocities without artifice. Gripping and visceral, this volume is a must have." -- Kirkus Reviews
