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
