The St. Louis Refugee Ship Blues

The St. Louis Refugee Ship Blues by Art Spiegelman (fragment)

In the Washington Post, Art Spiegelman recounts the shameful story of 900 Jewish refugees who were denied entry into the US in 1942 and were forced to sail back to Europe, and certain death.

It’s a gripping tale, especially thanks to the use of contemporary cartoons and photographs.
