For study of the Holocaust and an art integration, the books Maus I and
Maus II are very inspirational. They combine a sort of comic book style of
drawing with an extremely sensitive and important section of literature.

My students in ceramics viewed films about the Holocaust and were inspired
to do excellent responses to their feelings about the loss and suffering.
One young women created a free-standing coat, empty, to signify those who
were eliminated. Another student produced a sculpture somewhat like "The
Scream."

After a trip to Poland and Israel to study the Holocaust I too was moved
to create some meaningful pieces of art.

Sincerely,
Gary LaTurner
