Date Wed, Jul 14, 8:30am - 9:00am
Duration   30m

ZAP! POW! BAM! These words jump off the page as Captain America and Superman attack the comic book version of Adolf Hitler, who in reality was anything but an imaginary evil.

Superheroes have always fought dangerous villains. Their battle against Hitler in the 1940s taught children about World War II and the Nazis. But it took years before the Holocaust and Jewish victims were clearly illustrated and identified in popular comics and graphic novels. Join the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to learn how artists like Joe Kubert and Art Spiegelman led the industry to shed light on one of the darkest chapters in history.
