Can We Talk About MAUS?

A frame from Art Spiegelman’s graphic novel, MAUS. It is a black and white ink drawing depicting a pile of photographs of loved ones lost to the Nazi effort to eradicate all Jews. All the Jewish characters in the book are drawn as anthropomorphic mice, as in this frame, but elsewhere in the book Nazis are depicted as cats, non-Jewish poles are pig characters, etc.
