Search is a graphic novel for teens. The story is about the Jewish girl Esther, who fled from the Nazis to Holland and survived by hiding in different villages. Unfortunately, her parents were not so lucky – they were sent to a concentration camp. Esther does not know anything about the last months of their lives. Many years later, Esther tells the story to her grandson. With his help, she finds an old friend, and finally learns how her parents met their fate at Auschwitz. The book was created by Eric Heuvel and Anna Frank House in 2007 and has been translated into several languages. This year it is coming out in Russian.
