The Search and A Family Secret Graphic Novels
A Family Secret provides a graphic novel overview of WWII from a "safe" Dutch girl’s perspective as she relates the tale of her Jewish friend who suffered through the terror of the Holocaust. Characters in the book represent a wide diversity in respect to decency – from the innocent, to the heroic resistance fighters; from the passive bystanders, to the brutal Nazis. Firmly rooted in history and delivering accurate facts along an accurate timeline, A Family Secret does a remarkable job of communicating some of the most perplexing and disturbing events in Dutch history. The story and characters from A Family Secret are intertwined and expanded upon in The Search.
In this graphic novel about the Holocaust, a Jewish grandmother recounts to her grandson how she escaped from the Nazis and survived. With her grandson’s help she plunges into a search to discover what happened to the rest of her family during their last months at Auschwitz. The Search is a compilation of many stories of Jewish families who experienced the horror of the Holocaust. While the illustrations are not explicit, the narration is fairly specific as to the horrors the characters experience.
