Review: The Other Side of the Wall


The Other Side of the Wall
The Other Side of the Wall by Simon Schwartz

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

In this graphic novel biography, Simon Schwartz tells of his parents' early years in East Germany, the challenges faced by them as they rejected the communist way of life, and what it took to leave that life behind and start anew in West Germany.

Could serve as a great resource for older children/teens looking to explore Communism, political oppression, and/or the Berlin wall.
