Read full description of the books:
Iron Curtain: The boundary that symbolically, ideologically, and physically divided Europe into two separate areas after World War II.
Cold War: The geopolitical, ideological, and economic struggle that emerged between capitalism and communism from 1945 to 1991.
Communism: The ideology of the Soviet Union and other countries; a system of government in which the state controls all social and economic activity.
These basic terms lay the foundation for this graphic memoir, in which Sis recounts his childhood and adolescence in Soviet controlled Czechoslovakia. As a budding and talented artist, he eventually realizes how propaganda has blinded many (including himself) to the reality of a state controlled regime. Freedom was an idea he dreamed about and drew, especially during and after The Prague Spring.
Because of its size and shape, I mistook this for a children's picture book, and I was way wrong! This is a densely written and illustrated graphic memoir for young adults. Highly recommend!
