The journey of a Jewish partisan during the Holocaust.
The Holocaust is an event greater than the sum of the survivor testimonies and the stories of its six million victims. It is an event larger than life, and greater than the containment capacity of the human brain. It deserves to be described not only in testimonies and documentation, but in legends.
Judessey depicts the journey of Leon, a Jewish professor from Poland who finds himself in the midst of World War II, who strives to find his way home while battling the monsters of Europe. An epic tale of a Jewish partisan whose family is taken away by Nazis, this graphic novella shares a new legend about the Holocaust that unpacks generations of trauma. Judessey expresses the biggest trauma of our time in a format of legends based on the Odyssey, which has inspired so many human journeys.
