  • Annotation:
    • Joe Kubert's family immigrated to the US well before the start of World War II. Yossell is Kubert's imagining of life in the Warsaw Ghetto if his family has remained in Poland. It portrays Yossell, a teenager with a facility for art, and his involvement in the resistance, leading up to the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943.
