Sinopsis: In the middle of the 19th century, many young men were sent to Milan to work as slaves. Their lives were extremely difficult and many died from the harsh conditions. But Giorgio was able to survive because of the friendship and solidarity he experienced with a secret band known as "the black brothers." Some 100 years later, Lisa Tetzner and her husband Kurt Held wrote about Giorgio's experiences and adventures, and recently the accomplished artist Hannes Binder resurrected the text and added dramatic and impressive engravings, turning the final product into this exciting graphic novel.
About the Author:
Lisa Tetzner (1894-1963) was born in Germany and died in Switzerland. In 1924 she married the children’s book author Kurt Kläber whose books were published under the pseudonym Kurt Held. A victim of persecution by the National Socialists, Lisa fled with her husband to Switzerland where she had family connections through her mother. She became a Swiss citizen in 1948. After moving to Switzerland, she collaborated with her husband on a number of realistic and socially-conscious novels for young people, the most widely known of which is the nine-volume work The Children From No. 67. This children’s odyssey begins in a tenement house in Berlin in 1933 and ends in Switzerland in 1949 and is considered to be the most important German-language children’s book written in exile. It depicts the end of the Weimar Republic and the beginning of National Socialism in Germany. It has been translated into eight languages and recently reissued in Germany by the German publisher, Sauerlander.
Hannes Binder was born in 1947. He studied art at a college of arts and crafts in Zurich, worked as a commerical artist in Milan, and then as an illustrator and commercial artist in Hamburg. He lives in Zurich and works as a freelance illustrator and painter. Hannes Binder resurrected the original 500 page text and retold the story in a graphic format. His dramatic and impressive engravings turned the final product into an exciting novel in graphic book form. This “Roman in Bildern” (novel in pictures) was first published in 2002 in Germany to critical acclaim. The story is also the subject of a television series in Japanimation.
