The many forms of the past: The Jewish Daily Forward on the Property

“Rutu Modan's Secrets and Revelations” / The Jewish Daily Forward / Tobias Carroll / March 28, 2013

The past takes many forms in Rutu Modan’s graphic novel “The Property.” There is Regina, an elderly woman returning to Poland from Israel for the first time in over 60 years; overzealous re-enactors encountered by her granddaughter Mica on the streets of Warsaw; slides of far-off nations that Roman, a novelist, looks at as he recalls his youth; and a graphic novel with its roots in Polish history being written by Tomasz, who becomes smitten with Mica while working as a tour guide.
