Dark Horse Comics today announced plans to translate and publish award-winning Swedish comic We'll Soon Be Home Again, by Jessica Bab Bonde and Peter Bergting. The comic, which tells the stories of survivors of the holocaust, was first published last year by Natur and Kultur.
From the press release:
In We'll Soon Be Home Again, the testimonies of six Holocaust survivors are presented in comics form. All of them were children then, and are still alive to tell what happened to them and their families. How they survived. What they lost—and how you keep on living, despite it all. Using the first-person point of view allows the stories to get under your skin as survivors describe their persecutions in the Ghetto, the de-humanization and the starvation in the concentration camps, and the industrial-scale mass murder taking place in the extermination camps.
When right-wing extremism and antisemitism are being evoked once again, We'll Soon Be Home Again is the alarm-bell needed to remind us never to forget the horrors of the Holocaust.
We'll Soon Be Home Again, 104-pages, will hit comic book stores on March 25th next year and bookstores on April 7th.
