Kluger’s specific word choice – calling her mother paranoid and often eluding to the distain she felt towards her – also allowed the reader to experience the resentment among the family members. Even still, the Holocaust’s terror is not exclusive; those who endured it struggled to find their way in the world, and their family members struggle to understand why their parents act as they do sometimes, as well as how to come to terms with the fact that their parents had to endure such a terrible time. Klüger, Ruth.
This method was perhaps Spiegelman's way to show readers the race hierarchy. Also, this comic book is not of a typical Holocaust story, because it is a legacy of the event. The comic has stories within stories, Vladek Spiegelman's (Art's father), and Art's himself. The comic tells how the Holocaust affected Vladek's life after, and as Vladek told his experiences to Art, it showed how their relationship was affected as well. As Art took in everything his father told him throughout the book, he tried to understand his father.
Art arrived at his fathers’ home to capture the story. Within the novel you bare witness to this very awkward father son relationship, you see how one managed to escape death when it is the only option, and the lasting impact a traumatic experience such as the Holocaust can have on future relationships. Entering into the Holocaust Vladek and Anja had a son, Richieu, who was ultimately taken from and murdered. After the Holocaust they managed to conceive another child, Artie. The second generation children were miracles for those who had survived and was a sign that they had won.
Maus:The Horrors of the Holocaust The story Maus is a graphic novel about a son Artie interviewing his father Vladek because Vladek survived the Holocaust. Vladek is explaining to Artie what his life was like during the Holocaust for him and his family. Vladek was the only one left still alive during this time to tell the story to Artie. The story has many different links to the history of the Holocaust and helps readers understand the horrible facts these families had to face. Since it is from the perspective of someone who lived through it, it helps the reader understand really just what was going on in this time.

Spiegelman pours his heart and soul into this book to try and tell his fathers story of suffering as well, as his own. The difficulties of being a second-generation Holocaust survivor are shown as him and his father sometimes struggle to mesh and understand each other.

Un Sac De Billes was based on Joseph Joffo’s true life story which makes it an extraordinary piece. It educates us about events that took place in the early 90’s and how racial discrimination and the loss of their native land altered the lives of thousands of Jewish families. Joseph and his brother Maurice found means to survive and flee from the Germans throughout that period. As it is popular said, ‘What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’ and undeniably, the Joffo brothers became tough and indifferent to hardships. Works Cited Joffo, J.
