    Joe Kubert Scene From the Holocaust Illustration Original Art (2007). In addition to his fame as a comics illustrator, Joe Kubert is a well-respected educator and spokesperson for the comic book industry. In 2006 he wrote in a letter to the comics community, "Four years ago, when I wrote the book Yossel, about a teenage cartoonist whose life was spared by the Nazis because they were amused by his drawings, I did not know that there had been a real-life case that bore similarities to my book. I was stunned to learn of Mrs. Babbitt, and even more stunned by the Polish government's position," and concluded, "Together with officials of The David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies, an organization with which I have been active, I have prepared a petition to the Polish authorities. It is intended to be signed specifically by cartoonists, animators, and comic book artists. Adam, Andy, and I are very much hoping that you will join us." Kubert's staunch efforts to help Mrs. Babbitt in her 30-plus year quest to regain her paintings are reflected in this haunting, never-before seen drawing. This powerful piece has an image overall size of 11" x 17", and the art is in Excellent condition. Artwork From the David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies to Support the Dina Babbitt Campaign.
