Thief of Thieves 001
Throughout Maus, Jews are represented as mice, while non-jewish Germans are represented as cats. Other animals are used to represent other nationalities, religions, and races. Almost all the characters of a single “nationality” were drawn identically, with only their clothing or other details helping to distinguish between them. In making people of a single nationality look “all alike”, Spiegelman hoped to show the absurdity of dividing people by these lines. In a 1991 interview, Spiegelman noted that “these metaphors… are meant to self-destruct in my book — and I think they do self-destruct.”
Maus: A Survivor’s Tale, by Art Spiegelman, is a biography of the author’s father, Vladek Spiegelman, a Polish Jew and Holocaust survivor. It alternates between descriptions of Vladek’s life in Poland before and during the Second World War and Vladek’s later life in theRego Park neighborhood of New York City. The work is a graphic narrative in which Jews are depicted as mice, while Germans are depicted as cats. It is the only comic book ever to have won a Pulitzer Prize.
