A book read: Maus by Art Spiegelman

Maus is a comic book about Art’s father’s experiences during the Second World War. Jews are expressed as mice, nacists are cats, and other people dogs. This distinction makes it kind of easier to orientate in the story and to read through it faster. I’m not sure it was the author’s intent..

I guess you’ve heard a bit about holocaust. Right? You can get the sense of it again by reading this book; you can ask again how it is possible there could be so much hate against one race. What was so wrong with the Jews they were supposed to be exterminated? I just don’t get it.

Was the proper solution though just to take someone else’s ground and give it to them? And let them keep Palestinians in camps just like their fathers and grandmothers were?

Is all this because people won’t change but be cruel forever?
