UVic’s student newspaper, The Martlet, interviewed members of our team for a community article. Read the full story.
… the Canadian portion of the project brings together Romanian survivor David (Dago) Schaffer and American graphic artist Miriam Libicki, whose paternal grandparents survived the Holocaust.
In an email to the Martlet, Schaffer expressed his desire that the graphic novels would serve as a vessel for educating students on the importance of human rights. By doing so, he hopes that a new generation can be instilled with the values of not only human rights, but also of dignity, social justice, and equality.
“My hope is that the people reading the graphic novel will realize how important it is to be active and participate in activities to avoid … similar things [from happening] again,” Schaffer said.
