The Boxer: The True Story of Holocaust Survivor Harry Haft by Reinhard Kleist


The BoxerThis is a highly unromantic and pragmatic Holocaust story; this is not a glorified history full flawless victims, born-evil captors, and fateful circumstances. This is a story of what we do to survive and how we are pressured to compromise ourselves by forces beyond our control to make it through the world. This graphic novel demonstrates the long-term effects of trauma on individuals, families, culture, and future generations. The accompanying artwork resonates with the intense feelings of a hard-fought life and supports the physical and emotional hardships experienced during the Holocaust. Ultimately, this is a story of love and reconciliation across generations, particularly between father and son.
