Putting across a story.


This article explains a little of the history behind the making of Maus. It tells why he wanted to write it and goes a little into why he wrote it the way he wrote it. What I found interesting was how it mentions that many Holocaust survivors found Maus to be a terrible representation of the Holocaust. The way the Jews were compared to mice and Nazis to cats seemed a lot like the Nazi propoganda¬†movie we watched in class¬†“The Eternal Jew” (“Der Ewige Jude”).
