The role played by comic books in fighting fascism is explored in an exhibit spanning almost 70 years. During the war, superheroes such as Superman, Daredevil, and Captain America did battle with Adolf Hitler and his Nazis. Dr. Seuss, then an editorial cartoonist, depicted Hitler frolicking beneath the swaying bodies of executed Jews.

During World War II, the Czech resistance assassinated Nazi General Reinhard Heydrich. The Germans retaliated by randomly selecting the small village of Lidice for punishment. All of the men older than 16 were lined up and shot. Women were sent to concentration camps where many died. Most of Lidice’s children were shipped to Poland, where they were gassed.

This traveling exhibit, created by the Czech government, tells in 19 panels the why, where, and how of the Nazi military’s notorious revenge.
