5 The Darkest Of Truths Told In A Bizarre WayBaronBurr | 18/03/2009 | See all BaronBurr's reviews (5)The holocaust isn't an easy subject to cover in anymeans, especially in the meidum of graphic novels, but art speigelman hit the nail on the head with this ground breaking piece. an upsetting and frank transcription of his fathers survival in auschwitz, the tale of running, hiding. brutality and survival isn't easier to take even with the pictures of mice, cats,pig and other animals replacing humans, its a bold and harsh subject matter in a strangely cute personification. one of the my most treasured purchases ever. maus is a true tale that will bring a tear to anyones eye.
