Publisher's Comments

Famed comic creator Joe Kubert s family came to America from Poland in the 1920s, but the family almost was not allowed into the country. YOSSEL asks the question, What if my family had still been in Poland when the Warsaw Ghetto was founded?

In 1939, Yossel and his family were relocated by the Nazis to a special section of Warsaw for their protection. What no one knew, though, is that this was only the first step of a so-called Final Solution to try and wipe out the Jewish population. Yossel finds himself a pet artist for the Nazis who are entranced by his drawings of superheroes, but all will change when a face from Yossel s past tells the inhabitants of the Warsaw Ghetto what is really happening in the outside world."
