The Other Side Of The Wall

The Other Side Of The Wall by Simon Schwartz, 106 pages

Simon's parents met while studying at university in East Germany.  Simon's father grew up as a loyal member of the Socialist party.  His mother also mostly believed in the party but had questions and doubts.  As they both got older, they both began to develop more doubts until they applied for an exit visa to West Germany.  This graphic novel chronicles their stories as children through the collapse of the Berlin Wall.  Told from Simon's perspective, this was a good biographical account for children of an interesting time in history.
