    a memoir entitled Maus. Its author, Art Spiegelman, provides his readers with thorough glimpses into each means by which the Jewish people experienced systematic persecution within locations containing Germans as their main occupants. Deemed possessors of inferiority from a racial standpoint, the Jewish people experienced deprivation of fundamental humankind privileges. Nazis brought on infiltration of each thing where Jewish individual day-to-day living experiences went. Every movement they made got controlled. They lost riches, and properties. Violent acts in opposition to such people got sanctioned. The Jewish people got bullied/pressured into strenuous laboring in concentration camps, and…

    there is an ulterior motive when writers use such a technique but, sometimes, there is not. This “two-story telling,” without any ulterior motive takes place in “Maus” by Art Spiegelman where Vladek, Art’s father, recounts the story of the ghastly holocaust and how this relationship effects both of them. Even though Spiegelman doesn’t outright say that the story is also about his relationship with his father, it is clearly presented in the graphic novel. By using both the stories in his novel,…

    “Maus” by Art Spiegelman is a compelling and masterful story of survival told by Art’s father, Vladek Spiegelman. A Jew that lived in Poland during World War II. Vladek’s accounts are recorded and published in an odd manner. Instead of the traditional biography of a Holocaust survivor, like the Elle Wiesel’s “Night,” “Maus” was made into a comic book. Not only was “Maus” a comic book, but the characters are rendered very uniquely. The Jews are drawn as mice; the Poles were drawn as pigs,…

He endures many hardships as the graphic novel progresses, including but not limited to the loss of his first son, Richieu, numerous prison camps, and bankruptcy. However, what is unique about this graphic novel is the way it is illustrated—animals replace humans as the characters of the story. Jews are portrayed as mice, the Germans as cats,…

    Spiegelman’s way of portraying his story makes a different impact to the audience. In a way where the reader can perhaps relate and understand a tragic story line such as the Holocaust. Art’s cartoons give the reader the visual images he wants the reader to imagine. I personally enjoyed the way Spiegelman chose to pay close attention to the details entailed throughout the story. For example the way he choose the Jews to be represented as mice and the Nazi Germans as cats; when in present time we…

    Art Spiegelman takes the harsh reality of the Holocaust and illustrates his story in a comic book. Rather than drawing out humans to portray the characters in his story, Spiegelman effectively portrays each nationality and religion to an animal. This, in my opinion, works very well and the animals can relate to those specific groups in story. Such as the use of Mice as Jews, which are viewed as pest, in other words less than human to the Nazis. I will be able to explain why each of the animals…
