Mickey Mouse comics drawn by concentration camp prisoner

Avi sez, “‘Mickey Mouse in Gurs’ is a tragic ‘comic’ book made by Horst
Rosenthal in 1942 while incarcerated at the Gurs internment camp in
France. Rosenthal uses Mickey Mouse as a kind of subversive Virgil to
guide us through the hellish experiences of the concentration camp.
Horst Rosenthal was murdered in Auschwitz in 1942.” —BoingBoing
