The genocide of Europe’s Jews is no exception. Comic book authors gingerly tiptoed around the topic, sometimes stumbling, other times producing brilliant work. This historical and artistic exhibition on what is sometimes called the “ninth art” focuses on those depictions’ visual sources, relevance, reach and limits (humor and satire).
