Maus: A Survivor’s Tale is a memoir in graphic novel form by Art Spiegelman depicting the story of the WW2 in cat and mouse form . this book was a inspiration for my work on the valentines brief. i liked the stark black and white depressing look and feel to the book so i tried to capture that in my work to.

Also For research i read  Heinz Heger ‘s ‘The men with the pink triangle’ , a true life account of being a gay prisoner in a nazi camp.
