Chapter Two Originally there was going to be another page before this, but no matter how many versions I did of it, it simply didn't work. So instead, I'm simply going to go on with the next chapter, and have wilhelm refer to what would have happened on the last page. I might end up doing it in flashbacks, depending. It simply wasn't working as a page by itself, so.

As for the new chapter title page. It lacks a drawing, I know. Originally, it would have been Wilhelm, up against a wall, with the same graffiti spraypainted behind him. But it was too complicated, and I wanted to keep the covers really really simple - the wall background was taking away from the minimalism, and didn't match Chapter One.

That said, I am not entirely happy with this, and it will probably end up changed. For now, a translation:

"Alles Fur Deutschland" translates literally into "Everything for Germany".

Eh. After learning in detail about the holocaust, the power of this page really increases for me. Nazi history is truly upsetting, and i find it really interesting that you chose to narrate the story from a nazi soldier's standpoint.
i have a question though ~ wilhem was extremely disturbed by the random man's head, but isn't it his job to kill Jewish and such families anyway? or have we not got to the part in the story yet or something?

just curious o3o this is a really interesting comic!

In reply to ColdTurkey Actually, Wilhelm is a nazi, but he's not part of the SS (though his father is), and working with Der Verrater means that he's actually not allowed to talk about the jewish holocaust at all. I think it's on page four, or something, it's only really briefly mentioned.

Wilhelm, though he's a soldier, was brought up through the Hitler Youth, and because his father holds such a high rank, has never actually seen battle, or a lot of death.

His views on the subject become quite a plot point (in fact, one of the main ones), so if you're curious, stay tuned. :)

Just wanted to point out to Cold, a lot of people (even soldiers) were not aware of the senseless murder of the Jewish people (along with other "undesireable" groups) until the concentration camps were liberated and what was going on was made public. There were suspicions, of course, but nothing concrete was coming out of there. In addition, not all soldiers were members of the Nazi party.

Sorry for the double post. I forgot to compliment the comic thus far. The art is wonderful, and the story appears as though it will actually attempt to look at the people without reverting to the "evil Nazi" stereotype.

><; I feel bad for Poland now... And isn't it true the Soviets seized the body of Hitler when they invaded the HQ? I think that's what happened. Went over the holocoust a while ago, and my memory's not the best of sources...

*droo~ling* Pritty, pritty pages... *clings to compy moniter*

Just a random curiousity: do you natively speak German, or are you studying it in school or something?

mistake Just a little change. If you want it to be realistic to the extreme, then turn the nazi symbol the right way. You've posted the hinduist symbol... But great story, really deep

Just saying to Cat and yaoiperv....you're right that a lot of what was happening wasn't publicized, but that doesnt mean people didn't know what was going on. In countrysides, small villages, for example, you would find people ignorant of atrocities committed. But certainly in Germany, it would've been difficult not to know what was going on. Degredation of Jews, and other 'undesirables' was made quite public. For instance, ghettos were common, and were walled off sections of entire cities -- not something that will go unnoticed. The only thing that was hush hush was some of the liquidations of the ghettos, which could take place in a flash in the dead of night. And also....people knew what was going on way before the Soviets started liberating the east. Not everyone, of course, but people knew. Even people in America.
BTW, I am also a WWII buff....we history nerds do tend to congregate here, eh? :-)
