Letting It Go; Miriam Katin

Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day,  the first Sunday of every year in April, when we remember the millions of people killed in genocide during WWII and in genocides throughout history. So it seemed especially appropriate that I read Miriam Katin's new graphic novel, Letting It Go, that came out earlier this week, today.

Miriam Katin, was a little girl during World War II, and along with her mother, was fortunate to have survived getting captured by Nazis by hiding in the Hungarian countryside, which she details in her first, also excellent graphic novel, We Are On Our Own (in which she also gets into her loss of religious faith as a result of the Holocaust).

In Letting It Go, Miriam Katin's second graphic novel, again through her wonderful pencil art style (but this time in color), she writes about how her son tells her he wants to move to Berlin and she is having a really hard time with this as she has not forgiven what has happened in Germany during WWII. No one should ever forget the Holocaust or ANY genocide, but as Miriam Katin shows in Letting It Go, one needs to move on and Germany today has much to offer people. Thank you, Miriam Katin, for sharing another powerful story about how the Holocaust effected the people who lived through that horrendous time.
