Expo: Holocaust and comics

History is increasingly being used as the core framework for fictional works. The Holocaust is a key example of this. Graphic novelists have been focusing upon the subject since the 1970s: sometimes with uncertainty and hesitation but also with respect. 

In this exhibition, more than 200 comic strips, graphic novels and manuscripts guide visitors through depictions of the Holocaust. In what ways can you 'imagine' the Holocaust? What role do personal testimonies and memories play in a signed story? Are the works fictitious, or in fact journalistic? What motives, metaphors and artistic techniques do the authors use?

And above all: what social and educational role can the comic fulfil for younger and future generations?
