The Portrait of Esther

A historical comic presented like an investigation where the reader travels from contemporary Paris to 1940’s Paris.

From the point of view of the fictional life of the Blum family, the light is shed on historical events thanks to enriched content. The aim of this digital graphic novel is to make the new generations realise the extent of the Nazi extermination of people and memories. Through this transmedia project, the Museums in Angers want to raise awareness to the general public about what happened to the works of art that were stolen by the Nazis during Second World War.
