Drawn to Berlin: Comic Workships in Refugee Shelters and Other Stories from a New Europe
Intended for mature audiences
Ali Fitzgerald began teaching comics-making to refugees at a Berlin emergency shelter. In her eight years in Germany, Fitzgerald experienced her student's and her own creative highs, along with the deep depression of the disillusioned. In the refugee center, worlds collide and Fizgerald's story entwines the complex themes of political and personal displacement. Her drawings are compassionate and unflinchingly intimate making for a stunning graphic memoir about what you find when you attempt to help lost people.
