Re:view: women’s graphic memoirs about World War II

The publication of Art Spiegelman’s Pulitzer-winning graphic memoir Maus (in book form in 1991) shook the literary and art world alike. Maus is an autobiographical story about the artist’s father before the war and during the Holocaust, his time in Auschwitz, and Spiegelman’s own attempts to come to terms with this tale of survival.
