Famous Anti-Fascist Comic Book Hidden in Moscow Bookstore Due to Swastika Sign

Art Spiegelman’s famous graphic novel Maus about the Holocaust has been removed from shelves in one of the biggest Moscow bookstores.

      It happened because of a stylized swastika sign present in the anti-fascist book cover.

      The comic book is based on memorial narrations by Wladek Spiegelman's, the artist's father, who went through ghetto, Auschwitz and March of the Death to Dachau. The Jews are represented in the comic book by mice, and the Nazis are shown as cat characters. The graphic novel won the Pulitzer Prize in 1992.

      Maus by Art Spiegelman was for the first time published in Russian in 2013.

      Moscow authorities earlier announced that they would carry out raids on identifying goods, leaflets and souvenirs with the swastika and other extremist symbolics prior to the upcoming Victory Day.
