We Won't See Auschwitz

At Design Week, Emily Gosling has a few appreciative words for Paris-based Jérémie Dres’ graphic novel debut We Won’t See Auschwitz (out now from SelfMadeHero):

The Holocaust isn’t the easiest subject to explore through a medium as image-led as the graphic novel. However, new Self Made Hero-published book We Won’t See Auschwitz proves that with a little sensitivity, a sweet and unpatronising plotline and some sensitively evocative illustration, it’s possible to produce a volume that explores such weighty issues rather well.

While the illustrations may not be overly complex or technical, the sketchy black and white tales manages to cover some weighty histories, proving that in some cases, pictures really are capable of speaking a thousand words.

Where am I?
