Pattern 1

The main theme in both pages is that there is racism and Vladeck is a part of it. In the first page, Vladeck is the victim of racism while in the second page, Vladeck is the one being racist. These two pages are very similar yet very different. In both of the pages, there is racism and hatred toward a group of people. However, what is ironic is that the victim of racism and prejudice in the first page is the person being racist to another person based on skin color. One would think that a person who lived through the horror of racism and prejudice is the one who knows best how inhumane racism is.Tracing Maus pattern 1
