In Class Writing I – Important Panel from Maus

On page 61 of Maus there is a large panel depicting a deadly shooting. A man recounts the story to Art, expressing that nearly 600 Jewish prisoners were executed in the woods nearby, and allegedly, they were supposed to be next in line. Just when hope had surfaced in belief that he was to be released as a prisoner of war, Art is informed of the dire conditions of his current reality. This panel dramatically sets the tone for the grave and ominous conditions of this moment in time. Screen Shot 2018-02-08 at 4.22.24 PM.png
