American artist Art Spiegelman was among the first to show that the Holocaust can be dealt with in a comic. In 1992, his "Maus" became the first comic to win a Pulitzer Prize. In Spiegelman's work, however, the Nazis are depicted as cats and the concentration camp prisoners are mice - a technique that turns the story into a fable.
.... Imagine that :bootyshake: .

I just wonder how far they still need to drive that, before the majority of people shakes their heads in disbelief.

In Maus, the Poles are pigs. Try imagining the reaction if a Polish artist depicted the Jews as pigs. He'd probably finish up inside for race hatred.

:lol: What was their role in the story? From that I'm guessing they weren't shown in a positive light?

His final fight was against Rocky Marciano, on 18 July 1949 in Rhode Island Auditorium, in what was Marciano's 18th professional fight. Haft was knocked out by Marciano at the beginning of the third round. In his biography, Haft claimed that he was threatened by the Mafia and forced to throw the fight against Marciano.

Once a liar...
