This drawing represents Vladek Spiggelman hearing the news that the party before him had been completely slaughtered by the Nazis and that he would be in the next party. The reason why I chose to draw this scene is because it was the closest Valdek went to facing his death. The dark background and frightened expression of the mouse (jew) represents how terrified Vladek must have been to know that he would die in just a few days. Although he was lucky to be able to escape, thanks to his friend who was able to take him out of the camp, if he did not make it out of there he would have been dead, clearly affecting the existence of this book in the first place. Yet most importantly, back at that time, during the holocaust there were very little laws to protect the jews and therefore the Nazis weren't accused of anything even if they killed 600 jewish people. I believe that this drawing makes a connection between that harsh reality the jewish prisoners had to face during the holocaust and how scared those people would have been to be killed in one day, so easily.
