When I started reading the book Maus I noticed it talked about the Nazis and it intereted me that what the story talked about still wasn't quite what I expected to hear. I thought that in this part it would talk more about what happened to jews during the Holocaust but in this part the Nazism didn't reach Vladek's city. But from this bit of the story that I've read I can make a few connections already.
To begin with, my first connection is to the book The Boy in Striped Pyjamas, just like I did to the book Red Scarf Girl. In The Boy in Striped Pyjamas the story is about a boy who is he son of an important soldier who befriends a jew that's in the concentration camp (Auschwitz) nearby his new house. I think both of the stories of Maus and The Boy in Striped Pyjamas are connected because they both talk about some people's bad experiences during the Holocaust.
My second connection is Diary of Anne Frank. Once again, both of the stories talk about experiences of Nazi Germany and WWII. However, Diary of Anne Frank is much more deep since it is more realistic by the fact that it talks about two real stories of people who were fighting back from what the people were doing during WWII.
