Barbara Yelin

  • But I live
  • Four children survive the Holocaust
  • In dialogue, International Children's Book Festival, Program for children

Emmie Arbel survived the concentration camps Ravensbrück and Bergen-Belsen as a little girl. David Schaffer escaped the genocide in Transnistria because he did not follow the rules. Brothers Nico and Rolf Kamp hid from their murderers thirteen times in the Netherlands. Together with the survivors, well-known illustrators have told these stories in graphic novels that unforgettably demonstrate what the Holocaust meant – even for children. In the process, well-worn visual habits are broken.

Barbara Yelin is one of the best-known German comic artists. Her award-winning work includes graphic novels, web comics, comic strips, illustrations for newspapers and children’s books. She became internationally known with her graphic novel Irmina (2014).
