Miriam Katin
Miriam Katin

A stunning memoir of a mother and her daughter’s survival in WWII and their subsequent lifelong struggle with faith. Miriam Katin retells the story of her and her Mother’s escape on foot from the Nazi invasion of Budapest. With her father off fighting for the Hungarian army and the German troops quickly approaching, Katin and her mother are forced to flee to the countryside after faking their deaths.

Leaving behind all of their belongings and loved ones, and unable to tell anyone of their whereabouts, they disguise themselves as a Russian servant and illegitimate child, while literally staying a few steps ahead of the German soldiers. Katin, whose short stories first appeared in the Drawn & Quarterly anthology, has completed her first full-length graphic novel at the age of sixty-three.

Drawn & Quarterly, hardback, 136 pages, published June 2006
