Motion Comic In Holocaust

Disney Educational and Artist Neal Adams announced Motion Comics Series on Holocaust. Disney Educational Productions has enlisted comic book artist and activist Neal Adams to illustrate and narrate a new ten-part series of motion comics titled They Spoke Out: American Voices Against the Holocaust.

When superheroes team up in comic books, they typically combat a great evil. A similar approach is being undertaken with “They Spoke Out: American Voices of Protest against the Holocaust,” a 10-episode series of motion comics.

The project is collaboration among Disney Educational Productions, the David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies in Washington and the veteran comic book artist Neal Adams. Each episode will highlight a rarely told story of Americans who helped rescue Jews from the Holocaust and include a mix of animation, traditional comic book art, period photographs and film.

The first two episodes, “La Guardia’s War Against Hitler” and “Voyage of the Doomed,” will be screened at an art festival held by the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art on Sunday at the 69th Regiment Armory in Manhattan. The 10-episode series was written by Rafael Medoff, the director of the Wyman Institute.
