Berlin by Jason Lutes

Acknowledged as one of the most striking and well-executed historical fiction and graphic novels of 2018 by The Washington Post, The Guardian, the New York Public Library, and more!

This incredible and painstakingly researched graphic novel weaves the lives of fictional citizens into a tapestry depicting the fall of the Weimar Republic in Germany after WWI. Lutes’ characters serve as representatives of the women, men, and families who experienced the shock and devastation of the transition, which eventually gave rise to Hitler assuming power and leading the world into WWII.

This profound novel gives faces to the individuals swept away in the torrent of power that became Nazi Germany; and allows modern readers a glimpse of the subtle ways in which desperate times and promises of easy answers can lead to destruction and disaster.
