Format: Comic
From the back cover:

"It was in the early stages of researching this graphic narrative that I first encountered the German term
judenhass.

"Literally Jew Hatred. It seemed to me that the term served to distil the acient problem to its essence, and in such a way as to hopefully allow other non-Jews (like myself) to see the problem 'unlaundered' and through fresh eyes. Europe and various other jurisdictions aren't experiencing a sudden upsurge in 'anti-Semitism.' What they are experiencing is an upsurge in
judenhass.

Jew Hatred. So that's what I've chosen to call this story."

--Dave Sim, writer/artist/publisher

Between the covers is a collection of quotations from various historical figures, showing how widespread this Judenhass was in pre-WWII Europe and elsewhere. Interspersed with the quotes are detailed pen-and-ink illustrations, traced from original photos taken throughout the war.

From pg 1:

"The sixtieth anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz in 2005 made me think that every creative person should consider doing a workaddressing the Shoah -- the preferred Judaic term for the Holocaust -- at some point in his or her life

"And it seems to me this is nowhere truer than in the comic-book field which was created, developed, and built primarily by Jews, painstakingly, one comic book at a time, beginning in the 1930s when Jew hatred was about to manifest itself in one of the greatest --if not <u>the</u> greatest -- atrocities ever commited by man against mankind."

Seigel and Shuster, Kirby and Lee. These names are practically deified in comic circles, because they were the first. They were the ones who created the beloved icons, the modern-day mythical knights.

Format: Comic
If you have read my reviews of a lot of the later Cerebus volumes, you will know that I am not a great fan of Sim's shortcuts of melding text and visuals as opposed to doing real comics - Here though it works incredibly well as he juxtaposes images from the concentration camps with the various statements usually strongly anti-semitic - that created the culture and context that allowed the Holocaust to occur. An Amazing and powerful work especially important at this point in history when so much of media is subtly manufactured hate speech.. This book needs wider distribution I did not know of it until i found it in a discard bin at a comic book store. I found it to be far more effective and powerful than Eisner's similar The Plot..
