Remembrance Day was launched to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust, the great tragedy of the 1940s that saw much of Europe involved at the time. Hence, this celebration will be held on January 27th, and today we are offering you manga and anime to honor the victims of those tragic years.

Let’s start with a proposal for one of the most famous, beautiful and important works by Osamu Tezuka. The god of manga published the comic The Story of the Three Adolfs, which focused on the Nazi era and also the problems and relationships between Jews and Nazis, especially with the developed by Adolf Kaufmann and Adolf Kamil.

There are also those from the pen of Tezuka The mechanical apple manga, in the original Tokeijikake no ringo. The individual volume is a collection of self-contained chapters, and the very first, “The Execution Came At Three,” focuses on an SS guard who was overseeing a particular concentration camp. Both Tezuka mangas are available in Italy thanks to J-POP.

Dynit suggested that instead Hanako’s diary, from the original title “Ano ne”. The story, written and drawn by Machiko Kyo, takes place in a parallel world, but its type and character are strongly inspired by Nazi Germany. Hanako belongs to an ethnic minority that is heavily oppressed by the extremist fringe of politicians and whose youth have to live in a terrible climate.

Directly based on the There is an animated film by Madhouse instead. Anne no Nikki is directed by Akinori Nagaoka and produced in 1995. The focus is on the story of Anne Frank in 1942 and 1944, or her years as a secret.

A comic from Star Comics comes straight to the story of Anne Frank.
