But let s start at the beginning Maus is a collection of two graphic novels with autobiographical background about the author, Art Spiegelman, and his father s recollections about his experiences in the Second World War Spiegelman constantly switches between present and past, between the time when he writes down what his father tells him and the time when all the horrible events in the concentration camps took place But
I nazisti descrivevano gli ebrei come immondi parassiti, portatori di peste e corruzione, che invadono l Europa qualcuno adesso prova a usare la stessa immagine per chi arriva d oltremare Spiegelman disegna gli ebrei come topi, i nazisti come gatti, i polacchi come maiali.
