Spiegelmice at Berkeley

Published: 1995-09-01

“...faculty members at the University of California at Berkeley have sent incoming freshmen a list of 10 suggested books they might dip into this summer.
“The Eclectic list—defended by organizers as an attempt to get students to think as they enter the world of serious scholarship—was assailed as manipulation to enforce political correctness and extremist multiculturalism.”

One of the ten books is “two” books: Maus: A Survivor’s Tale and Maus II: A Survivor’s Tale and Here My troubles Began by Art Spiegelman. The Holocaust done as a comic strip, with the Nazis as cats and the Jews as mice—and the Poles as pigs, an innocent Spiegelman touch that has not received the press it should have.

Berkeley is where historian David Irving has been prohibited from speaking TWICE on revisionist theory by liberal/communist rioters. Spiegelman Yes! Irving No!
