I never thought I‘d give a memoir graphic novel ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, but here we are! This story is just heartbreaking and yet greatly empowering. Takei chooses his word with great care and power. Paired with the art, it becomes a story that sticks with you, as it should. We can look back on history with disgust, but we must look back in order to avoid similarities in the future.
My first book by Kristina McMorris and I ❤️ it!! Historical fiction about three young women roommates during wartime. Each are trying to figure out who they are and who they want to be. At the front of the story, Liz corresponds with a soldier she and her friends met at a dance the night before he was deployed. However, Morgan, the soldier, thinks he‘s writing letters to a different woman. #MountTBR
Holocaust Memorial Day 2020 marks 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz. I‘ve visited Auschwitz four times and I still find the sheer scale of the systematic murder that took place incomprehensible. It‘s really important that we learn from the events of the Holocaust, Rwanda, Bosnia, Cambodia and Darfur. The HMD theme of ‘Stand Together‘ is so important in such divisive times.
I‘m going to start this book today. Seems appropriate as 75 years ago today, Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps were liberated. 6 million men, women and children were senselessly murdered. #neverforget
