Storyboard Text

  • Artie, those diaries Anja wrote... if you want them, you'll have to search the house.
  • Those diaries would mean everything to me. They'd greatly benefit my comic.
  • All I wanted was some of my mother's story. She's gone now, I guess I'll never know.
  • ARTIE!
  • What?! What is it Pop!? Have you found them? Please say it's true!
  • No no my boy, I'm sorry. However, I did find something that might be of your interest...
  • After Artie asks his father, Vladek, where he might be able to find his mothers' diaries from the Holocaust, Vladek confesses he's unsure where they might be.
  • PLEASE! Pop! What is it? Oh please tell me now!
  • You know very well that when your mother ended her life, how she didn't leave a note?
  • After scouring the house for hours, Artie realizes that there's no hope of him ever finding the diaries. He was very upset, but his father started calling for him from downstairs.
  • She did, in fact, leave a letter. Just for you though. I've never read it, I've always been jealous that she never left one for me.
  • Artie came rushing downstairs in the hopes that maybe Vladek had found the diaries.
  • Well, here. You can read it for yourself.
  • Dear Artie,
  • Curious as to what his father might've found, he didn't waste a second in begging his father to show him.
  • Yes?  That was years ago...
  • Poor Artie was about to discover that he'd been lied to for years, but st least he might finally get some closure.
  • How could you have kept this from me all these years? I just want to know what she wrote!
  • Vladek handed over the letter, and Artie's life was about to be changed forever.
