Holocaust strip cartoon tested on German schoolchildren

BERLIN (AFP)--- A strip cartoon telling the story of the Holocaust has been tested on hundreds of German schoolchildren, provoking "lively discussions" in class and a desire to find out more, organisers said on Friday.
 
"The strip cartoon provoked lots of interest among the pupils and generated a lively desire to find out more about the subject," said Janka Hartwig from the Anne Frank Centre in Berlin, which organised the project.
   
"Die Suche" ("The search") tells the made-up story of a Dutch Jewish woman, Esther Hecht, who survived the war but whose parents were both murdered at the Auschwitz concentration camp.
   
It follows her as years later, with her grandson Daniel, she tries to find the people who hid her from the Nazis.
   
The book was tested on 456 pupils aged between 12 and 15 between February and July in Berlin and in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia who then completed a questionnaire about what they thought about it.
   
The book, illustrated by Eric Heuvel, was developed by experts from the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, named after the Jewish girl whose diary about hiding from the Nazis before being deported in 1944 and killed became world-famous.
   
"The power of the strip cartoon is that is went down the same way in all the classes, no matter what age group or level," Hartwig said.

"Die Suche" ("The search") tells the made-up story<<<

At least it has something in common with all the other holocau$t stories -- "made up."

And I have bad news for the author...despite all of the mandatory force-feeding of whimsical jew holocaust stories, most German kids couldn't give two shits about jews or their fairy tales.

Sorry.

I expect it'll come a poor second to Harry Potter though, and have actually fewer facts.

Harry potter is coming out with a new movie in 2009.
