May 1st was National Holocaust Remembrance Day. For week 18 of our Kansas sesquicentennial series, we're featuring "Crossroads", a lithograph based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novel Maus: A Survivor's Tale by Art Spiegelman. Spiegelman took thirteen years to finish Maus I & II, the biography of his father, Vladek, which alternates back and forth between flashbacks to World War II and his experience in a concentration camp, and current life in Rego Park, a neighborhood in New York City where the family immigrated and settled. In Maus (German for mouse), the Jews are portrayed as mice and the Germans appear as cats. It is the only graphic novel to ever win a Pulitzer Prize.
