Spiegelman book 2 chapters 1-2

so the second book of Maus focuses on Vladek's joureny throught Auschwitz and how he survived in the concentration camps. Vladek uses the same clever tactics that he used in Poland in Auschwitz to survive in the camp. Spiegelman uses the same ideas in presenting the sory as he did in the first book of Maus. The setting for the stroy has changed as his father is now in the Catskill Mountains in upstae New York. In most of the pictures the mice are not drawn as bad as I thought they would be. Only when they take off their shirts or dead mice are shown are they shown to be in bad condition.
