New Graphic Novel Details Jewish Family in 1940s Israel

The British White Paper, the Arab riots and the coming Israeli independence are turned into a comic book style narrative in a new graphic novel entitled Jerusalem: A Family Portrait. Written by Boaz Yakin and illustrated by Nick Bertozzi, the book details a family's experiences in turbulent Jerusalem between 1945 and 1948. Yakin uses his own family's experiences as source material, being the nephew of the well known writer and lecturer Ezra Yakin (alternatively spelled Yachin), a veteran of the Lohamei Herut Yisrael and author of the book Elnakam.
