The graphic way Germany teaches its youth about the Holocaust





No one can accuse the Germans of ignoring the horrors of the past. So concerned have they become about a lack of knowledge of the Holocaust among children that they are distributing a new book in schools depicting their country's genocide in an easily accessible graphic novel.
The "comic book" format is seen as the best way to get a whole new generation of teenage children to confront the most dreadful period of their nation's history.

The book - entitled The Search - shows a grandmother telling her grandson the circumstances of how her father and her brother, Bob, were sent to Auschwitz during Hitler's "Final Solution", in which six million Jews and many others were murdered.
