Naepel, Oliver. Auschwitz im Comic - Die Abbildung unvorstellbarer Zeitgeschichte [Auschwitz in Comics - The Depiction of Unimaginable Contemporary History]. Muenster (Germany): LIT, 1998.ISBN 3-8258-3703-3.

Description by the author: This monography gives an answer to the (unjustified but repeatedly asked) question whether comics can be an adequate means of expressing and discussing complex historical events like the holocaust. The author (me) formulates a definition for comics (which is not self-evident with German historians) and gives a brief outline of the history of comics. The main part deals with the analysis of various comic books that deal with the holocaust (mainly spiegelman's maus) thus trying to prove that comics as a medium are more than adequate to deal with such problems.
