WND: 8th Grade Korean American Crafts Graphic Novel on Holocaust

posted by Randall

 

Auschitz Concentration Camp14-year old Christopher Huh became interested in the Holocaust in the 7th grade when his English teacher assigned him several books about the Holocaust experience.

The Korean American Christian teen became so interested he embarked on a 14 month journey to research and write a graphic novel about a polish born Jewish grandfather who survived Auschwitz.

Huh has been sketching drawings since he was 6 years old. He told his story to WND.

“I thought it was an interesting subject to learn,” said Huh who attends middle school in Clarksburg, Maryland. “I thought what better way” to teach about the Holocaust “than through a book with words, with pictures.”

Huh has visited the Holocaust Memorial  Museum in Washington, DC twice for his book to get a better sense of the clothing, the bunks and what life was like.

His book is titled Keeping My Hope and you can read about it in WND.
