Art Spiegelman looks back to a ship lost in the 1939 sea of indifference

June 23, 2009 | 7:38 p.m.

I always find something interesting on Heidi MacDonald’s fine blog The Beat and today it was a link to a new Art Spiegelman piece that’d I’m awful glad I didn’t miss. It’s called the “St. Louis Refugee Ship Blues” and it ran in the Washington Post, and instead of trying to read the small print below (as if you could) you should go and check it out on that paper’s website as a Flash program or large static page. You can find it right here.
