With an unusual comic book format, this somewhat controversial book disarms the reader's preconceptions about the Holocaust, allowing fresh perspectives to be gained.

The tale is autobiographical, with the cartoonist depicting himself in the process of recording his father’s experiences from the Holocaust. His father’s story of survival is reenacted, with the Jews drawn as mice and the Nazis as cats. Through vivid personal history, the cartoonist approaches a subject of overwhelming proportions and includes the effect that momentous events have had on the dynamics of the family.
