“The amazing thing about Maus—and after more than two decades, this 1992 Pulitzer Prize winner does indeed still amaze—is its incredible effectiveness as a teaching tool. In a time when massive tomes and numerous hours of documentaries about the Holocaust continue to replace the few voices of first-hand experience left, this simple heartbreaking tale in comic-book form goes right to the heart of its subject in the most literal way—connecting the reader emotionally to one of history’s great tragedies: an extremely valuable lesson, and a way to keep the memory of it forever alive.”—Main Library
