Graphic Novels – New Stock Review I
Posted by LibeRaCe on September 5, 2007
Don’t mistake graphic novels for kids cartoons – some deal with real life situations and often make make a impact in a way that regular history books could only dream of….
This book tells the story of the Genocide in Rwanda through the eyes of a young boy. The events of the time are dealt with honestly, yet sensitively, by J.P.Strassen. But has the world learned any lessons from the events described in this sometimes harrowing novel?

Safe Area Gorazde (16+)
In 1994, Gorazde became the only town in Eastern Bosnia not to be ethnically cleansed by the Serbs during the Bosnian War. How did the town survive when the peace-keepers pulled out? And what impact has the legacy of this war left on our ‘New Europe’.
