Holocaust in Comics (KZ-Gedenkstätte Dachau)

From 19 April until 30 September 2012, the exhibition “Holocaust im Comic” (Holocaust in Comics) is shown at Evangelische Versöhnungskirche of KZ-Gedenkstätte Dachau. Curator Ralf Palandt, himself comic artist and founding member of Gesellschaft für Comicforschung (ComFor) (Association for Comic Studies), published a reader on right-wing extremism, racism and anti-Semitism (“Rechtsextremismus, Rassismus und Antisemitismus in Comics”) in 2011.

The time of  National Socialism and the Holocaust are increasingly addressed in comics and graphic novels. Not always, the works are so impressive and congenial as Art Spiegelman’s landmark graphic novel “Maus – A Survivor’s Tale”. One example is the documentary “Auschwitz” by French author Pascal Croci (* 1961), who in 2001 was awarded the Prix Jeunesse of the French National Assembly.
