Author: Art Spiegelman
Finished: March 17, 2009
Pages: 136
Published: 1986

The ending to the story on one man’s journey through Auschwitz, his survival and life story, told by his son Art. This portion had a very different feeling to it compared to the first part. Art is now having a hard time finishing up the rest of the story without his father’s help.

I love how Spiegelman, as an author, includes his own struggles with the story and his own personal life into his work to show the reader that the Holocaust did not only effect those in the camps, but those outside as well, coming to terms with their histories.

It was a great ending, very fitting for the story Spiegelman was telling, very well rounded and came full circle.
