expected story to be better. the title is a little deceiving. story was well intentioned but many factual errors.. several times refers to riga as the captial of estonia, which is wrong, it is the capital of latvia. there is even a panel which shows a map of lithuanian and latvia and shows riga is in latvia yet they refer riga as in estonia. says the germans and russians battled back and forth over vilnius many times. vilnius was under russian control from 39 to 41 and then german occupation from 41 to july 44. the story takes place in 43. yet they show many street battles in the city there are also substory plots or lines where are not consistent with what and how the germans, latvians and lithuanians resistance and civilans interacted with the jews. the drawing and suspense were great and i read it through several times to appreciate the artistry but the plot was thin and disappointing. his previous yosele about the warsaw ghetto uprising was more realistic and accurateWas this review helpful?
