CHUTZ-POW! Using Graphic Prose in Holocaust Education

Marcel Lamont Walker

Marcel Lamont Walker, CHUTZ-POW! Project Coordinator and Lead Artist, The Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh

The various mediums of graphic prose - comic books, comic strips, and graphic novels - have depicted Holocaust-related narratives for decades, across genres as diverse as military, horror, and superhero comics. More recently, graphic-prose memoirs (such as MAUS) have given a more intimate glimpse into the experiences of those who lived through the Holocaust and been adopted by educators worldwide into Holocaust curriculums.

In 2014, the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh began publishing an original comic-book series, CHUTZ-POW! SUPERHEROES OF THE HOLOCAUST, an anthology series dedicated to telling the true-life stories of survivors and heroes of the Holocaust. Designed specifically for use in classrooms, it has been embraced by educators in the United States and is becoming recognized globally. This program includes a presentation by artist and educator Marcel Lamont Walker of the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh, who will discuss the scholastic merits of using graphic prose to tell the stories of Holocaust survivors and heroes.
