Maus Penguin Graphic Fiction Pt. Published by Penguin Books Ltd. The graphic novels received much critical praise and went on to win the first Pulitzer Prize ever awarded to a graphic novel in It has also won many prestigious comic awards like the Eisner Award and the Harvey Award It has been translated into about thirty languages and is regularly taught in schools in Germany.
The characters in the story are all depicted as different animals, with the Jewish people appearing as mice and the Germans and Polish people as pigs and cats. Spiegelman was intent on depicting the Jewish characters as mice because of his knowledge of Nazi propaganda that depicted Jewish people as vermin. Art is sitting alone and drawing when his wife asks him what he is doing. He confesses that he is trying to decide how to draw her in the comics.
Because she is the only French woman in the graphic novel, he does not know if he should draw her as a mouse or a bunny rabbit. Francoise insists that she be drawn as a mouse as she has converted to Judaism after their marriage. Frightened, Art immediately calls his father. After we see his side of the conversation, he hangs up and reveals that Vladek did not have a heart attack, he only said so so that he could be sure that his son would call him back.
They tell their friends that they will be back in a few days and set out. Art tells Francoise that he often wonders if his he and his deceased brother, Richieu would have gotten along if they had ever met. He says that after the war, Vladek and Anja could not accept that Richieu was dead and began searching orphanages for him all over Europe. He says that as a child, he only knew Richieu from a picture that was hanging in the house and that he often felt that he failed to live up to the standard of his dead brother.
Maus - Wikipedia
He shows them the room he has set up for them although Art makes sure to tell him that they are only planning on staying for a few days. The next morning Vladek wakes them up early and tells Art that he needs help getting his taxes and bank papers in order as Mala has left him without any help.
Vladek also tells Art that Mala left after a trip to the bank where Vladek tried to set up trust accounts for his brother and Art. Mala wanted all of his money for herself and became enraged and drove away. Mala cleaned out the money from their joint account and also took the car and some jewelry.
He assumes that she went to Florida so she could sell their condo and take the money. Francoise fetches Art and tells him that she feels claustrophobic around his father because the man is so anxious. A few hours later, Art and Francoise are helping Vladek with his bank papers when Vladek tells Art that he is doing the additions incorrectly. They argue until Francoise tells them to go out for a walk so that she can fix the papers.
They agree and Art grabs his tape recorder so that he can hear more of the story. During the walk, Art asks his father what happened after he and Anja made it to Auschwitz and were separated. Auschwitz was in a town called Oswiecim, where Vladek had sold textiles in the past before the war. Now he came to the town again under terrible circumstances. After arriving, he was brought into a big hall with the other Jewish men in his convoy and told to undress and hand over his valuables. The Nazis took their papers, their clothes and shaved their heads.
After this, they showered them in one room and threw them prison clothes. They registered the men and took their names, giving them a number which they branded into their arms. Vladek and the other prisoners were put into a room where he sat down and began crying. A priest who was not Jewish but was a prisoner came over to him and asked why he was crying. He asked Vladek to show him his number and told him that it was a lucky number as it started with 17 which is a good omen in Hebrew.
The priest tells Vladek that he is certain that he will come out of the camp alive because of this. This cheered Vladek and although he never saw the priest again, while he was in Auschwitz he often looked at his number when he needed strength to go on. A day after Vladek arrived at the camp, a truck was brought in with more Jews who were all put into the room he was in. The room was so overcrowded that many men had to sleep on the floor. The barrack was overseen by a prisoner called a Kapo who was a peasant from the German part of Poland. The man was a tyrant and regularly made the Jewish prisoners do exercises until they could not move.
One day the Kapo asked the prisoners who among them knew English and Polish and Vladek told him that he had taught English years earlier. The Kapo told him that he wanted to learn English. The next morning Vladek managed to survive the line-up by taking his advice and was sent out for work duty instead of being sent to be killed in the ovens. The Kapo came for his lessons again and allowed Vladek to share his breakfast with him which was the heartiest meal that Vladek had enjoyed in a long time.
The Kapo confesses to Vladek that he is trying to learn English because the Allies are bombing the Reich and he thinks that they might win the war. After this, the Kapo became friends with Vladek and protected him on many occasions. This caused the other prisoners to fear Vladek as the feared the Kapo. He said that skilled workers usually lived longer and that he would try to get Vladek a job doing something he knew from before the war.
Vladek interrupts the story to tell Art that they can sneak onto the patio of a hotel called The Pines and watch the bingo tournament. Art agrees and Vladek tells him that Mala never wanted to watch bingo with him. The next chapter begins with a depiction of Art sitting at his desk telling the reader that his father died of congestive heart failure in August of , just 3 years after Francoise and he stayed at his cabin in the Catskills.
The depiction of Art has changed for this part and he now appears to be a normal, human man sitting at his desk with a mouse mask strapped to his face. He tells the reader that Maus has become a critical success and fifteen foreign editions have since come out and that he and Francoise are expecting a baby.
He has gotten offers to turn the book into a movie and reveals that he does not want to do this. One panel reveals that he is sitting at his desk with piles of mouse bodies at its foot and reporters begins converging on him, asking about the novels and trying to get him to do licensing deals. Art begins screaming and the reporters all disappear, leaving him as a much smaller version of himself in the same chair.
He has an appointment with his therapist who asks him how things are going.
Art complains that he has no time for work because he is doing interviews and business propositions. Art asks Pavel if he feels guilty for surviving and Pavel confesses that he only feels sadness. He tells Art a bit more about Auschwitz that his father did not fill in before he died.
Feeling better, Art goes home and listens to the tapes he made of his father continuing the story. The Kapo got Vladek a job in the tin shop because of his time working as a tinsmith in the Jewish Ghetto. The chief of the tin workers was a Jewish, Russian man named Yidl who was a communist. He hated Vladek immediately because of his former success in the business world.
The other prisoners told Vladek that he could win Yidl over by bribing him with good food like sausage and cheese. Vladek began trading with the Polish workers who were paid to work in the camp. Vladek says that everyone in the camp was starving all the time because they were fed very little. For breakfast, they were only given a drink made from roots. Once a day they were given watery soup made from turnips and a small square of bread that was made from batter mixed with sawdust and then at the end of the day they would get spoiled cheese or jam.
Eating only what the soldiers gave you without trading meant that you would eventually starve to death. He found out that she was in a separate part of the camp that was called Birkenau, which was located about 2 miles up the road. Birkenau had five times as many prisoners as Auschwitz. A Hungarian woman named Mancie working in the camp told Vladek where Anja was and put him in touch with her by delivering letters between them. Mancie took a great personal risk in helping them as she would have been killed by the guards instantly if she were discovered but she agreed to do it only because she saw how much they loved one another.
Anja was not doing well in the camp and her Kapo was cruel to her, making her work jobs that she was not physically capable of doing. One day, Vladek managed to arrange to have himself sent to Birkenau for work duty. When the workers were let into the other camp they began shouting out their relatives names in the hopes that they or someone they knew would hear it. Someone did know Anja and went to fetch her but Vladek could not speak to her directly. He continued to do his work fixing a roof while she stood on the ground below and pretended to be working herself.
Vladek told her that he loved her and gave her instructions for taking care of herself. Anja told him that Mancie had gotten her some better jobs in the kitchen and that she often ended up with table scraps at the end of the day. Vladek managed to bump into Anja again while working but a guard caught them speaking and beat Vladek severely as a punishment.
The next day, Vladek struggled to work with his wounds but he could not go to the hospital as most of the people who went never returned. He tells Art that he stood in a line up in front of the infamous Dr. The doctor looked him over for sores and to see whether they were still fit to work. Vladek began working in the shoe repair shop in the camp. Because he had some experience repairing shoes, he was able to fake his way into the shop so that he was no longer under the boot of Yidl and was kept in a more private area. A group of women was set to be moved from Birkenau into new dorms in Auschwitz and because Vladek had gotten in with the guards by fixing their shoes for them so well, he managed to bribe them into arranging it so that one of the women was Anja.
This way, Anja and Vladek were in close proximity to one another and could pass packages and messages. However, one day Anja was caught by a Kapo while leaving a package and only narrowly managed to escape and hide in the dorms. The Kapo tortured all of the women in the dorm by forcing them to do exercises until they dropped of exhaustion but no one gave Anja up. After this, Vladek and Anja stopped passing packages to one another. Vladek says that he did Black Work until almost the end of his time in Auschwitz when he became a tin man again.
They began digging huge pits to bury the bodies and would kill the prisoners digging the pits by burying them alive inside of them. All ages were killed in these gas chambers, from the elderly down to babies. The next morning, Vladek and Art talk more about his plan for Art to stay with him the whole summer.
Art reminds him that he only intended to stay for a few days. Vladek begins clearing out his summer cabin and encourages Art to take leftover food from Mala. Art argues and Vladek says that ever since he was in Auschwitz he does not like to leave food behind. Art feels guilty and apologizes to his father for snapping at him. He says that he read that a few of the prisoners working in the Auschwitz gas chambers managed to revolt and kill 3 S.
He says that if they had only waited a few more weeks, they would not have had to do anything because the end of the war was drawing near. He tells Vladek that he and some other men plan to hide before the evacuation in a disused laundry room. The men had to join the march out of the camp.
The prisoners were marched on foot all through the night and anyone who lagged behind or collapsed was shot. The man who had wanted to hide in the laundry room arranged to bribe a guard to let him and several others run off into the woods. He offered to let Vladek come but Vladek declined, thinking it was a trap.
Of course, that night when they tried to run off the man and his friends were shot immediately. Eventually, the prisoners made it to Gross-Rosen a camp in Germany. Many more thousands of prisoners were being brought in as they were being pulled back into Germany. The camp was a chaos and Vladek narrowly avoided being beaten or killed by volunteering to haul soup in large cans out for the prisoners.
The next day they have marched out of the camp again and onto a train that had been designed for animals.
Vladek managed to string up a blanket on two hooks to get out of the crowd who were pressed into the train so close that only about 25 people out of managed to survive being crushed or trampled to death. After the train was stopped, the prisoners were left inside for days with no food, water or sign of life. Many people began dying from lack of water.
