Sheila's Reads

I love to read. I am very eclectic in my reading but I especially enjoy erotica and erotic romance. I also like movies, live theater and concerts, hockey, and counted cross-stitch.

MAUS II: AND NOW MY TROUBLES BEGIN by Art Spiegelman

Maus, Vol. 2: And Here My Troubles Began - Art Spiegelman
Picks up where book 1 ended.  I was aware of more present day happenings of how the Holocaust affected those who lived through it.  Art picks up his father's story of being sent to Auschwitz.  He talks of what happened and the fear they lived with as well as what they did to avoid the gas chamber.  He speaks of the end of the war and liberation as well as coming to the United States.
 
This is harrowing.  Those who made it through were strong.  The story is intense and scary.  It is sad as so many of the survivors lost so much--people and property.  Vukula talks of those who made it through in his family and his wife's as well as the consequences of surviving.  Never again!
