Maus I: a Survivor's Tale; My Father Bleeds History by Art Spiegelman
A grown son questions his father about the father's past years in Poland and in Auschwitz. He records it all and writes this graphic novel about his father's experiences; mostly it focuses on the father's work to survive during a terrible time. It's captivating and a quick read. I rarely read graphic novels, but this was very well done. I am going to look for the sequel: Maus II.
