Revue de presse

Starred Review, Booklist, March 1, 2013 issue: This is most powerful for investing a massive and complex issue with real human emotion. --Booklist, starred review

Présentation de l'éditeur

Jerusalem is a sweeping, epic graphic novel that follows a single family—three generations and fifteen very different people—as they are swept up in chaos, war, and nation-making from 1940-1948. Faith, family, and politics are the heady mix that fuel this ambitious, cinematic graphic novel.

With Jerusalem, author-filmmaker Boaz Yakin turns his finely-honed storytelling skills to a topic near to his heart: Yakin's family lived in Palestine during this period and was caught up in the turmoil of war just as his characters are. This is a personal work, but it is not a book with a political ax to grind. Rather, this comic seeks to tell the stories of a huge cast of memorable characters as they wrestle with a time when nothing was clear and no path was smooth.

Jerusalem was often a time of chaos and conflict during the years the state of Israel was being established in the 1940s. Communists, Zionists, Jews, Arabs, and British soldiers were mixed into a boiling pot that pitted brothers against brothers and race against race.

Graphic novelists Boaz Yakin and Nick Bertozzi have sought to capture those unsettling times through the lens of one family: the Hallabys. In their novel, Jerusalem: A Family Portrait, they introduce readers to brothers Izak and Yakov, the patriarchs, estranged from each other over past differences. Izak and Yakov's children are caught up in their personal war, as well as in the larger conflict that swirls around them.

Izak's adult sons are a reflection of the myriad forces at work. Two of them fought with the British army in Europe during World War II. One would like to see Israel become Communist and cooperates with Arabs who feel the same, another fights with Jewish rebels. Everyone suffers privation and shortages during the most difficult times.

Each family member has a different perspective, and through their eyes the larger tale unfolds. While this is fairly recent history, it also seems to be not very well known or understood. The authors provide background in an introduction that provides a map of the British Mandate Palestine in 1945, a brief history of the city of Jerusalem beginning with the Ottoman takeover in 1517 until 1939, and a personal history of the Hallaby family. The stories are based on the experiences of Yakin's own family, who lived in Palestine during this time.

As with any good graphic novel, the images tell so much of the tale, and such is the case in Jerusalem. The fighting, confusion, suffering, and turmoil leap off the pages, as do small moments of joy and triumph that sometimes shine through. I recommend it for anyone who loves history.

The publisher provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A powerful story 20 avril 2013
Par Andy Shuping - Publié sur Amazon.com
The year is 1940. The place is Jerusalem. And there is war all around. Not only is World War II continuing and taking away the men and boys of Israel to fight Hitler's armies, but Jews and Arabs are fighting once more within Jerusalem. This story follows three generations of the same family, 15 members in total, from 1940-1948, through war, through jail, through faith, and through death. This is a story that will not let you go.

This has been one of the most difficult books for me to review, not only because of the content (which at times draws close to some buried family secrets) but also because of the way the story is told. Boaz is a filmmaker at heart and it shows in how he writes and plots his stories as he moves from one person to the next and then back again to pick up the characters tale. It's a powerful and interesting way to create a story, but at the same time there were times I got lost and needed a scorecard to keep up with the characters (of which thankfully there was one in the front.) It took me two read throughs to see the entire story, which is probably more my reading style than that of Boaz's writing. That aside though, this is a powerful story and is one that you'll want to read again and again to see what you might have missed. Although Boaz fictionalized parts of the story, much of it still has the feel of a biography which makes it even more interesting to read.

Nick's black and white illustrations make it feel like we're watching one of those old classic black and white films and gives the film a sense of heaviness, of reality that grounds the story and helps keep it real. We watch as the characters grow and change during this 8 year time period and come to life. Although the illustrations are relatively simple, Nick adds details to keep visual interest that will keep the reader looking for visual imagery that enhances the story.

This is one of those books that you need to have a box of tissues next to you and a computer handy so that you can lookup aspects of the history, not to verify anything, but to enhance your understanding of the story and the places discussed. And once you get done...read it again. And then pass the book onto someone else. I give the book 4 out of 5 stars.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 What a good use of graphic novel format. 22 avril 2013
Par Sojourner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
The book is amazing for its sophistication given that it is a graphic novel. The story brings to life the human component of the formative years of pee-independence Israel. It is brutally honest. One laughs and one is brought almost to tears from the stories within the stories.
A few details may be wrong, but they are minor. In a Halabi synagogue the siphrey Torah would be in a wooden case, and the pronunciation for the benediction over wine would be "gephen" and not "gaphen."
I will be sharing this book with friends and will give it as gifts.

Jerusalem; A Family Portrait by Boaz Yakin and Nick Bertozzi

Three generations of the Halaby family live in a tiny, cramped apartment in Jerusalem. It is 1945 and World War II is ending. Many Jewish people are emigrating to Israel. The Halaby's have 4 sons and 1 daughter. One of the Halaby sons is off fighting in Italy. Another is a fighting for Israel Independence, while another son borders on being a terrorist and inciting violence in the city. The youngest son is free to roam and grows up amidst this turbulent era of Independence.

Yakim and Bertozzi have written a stunning historical graphic novel that teaches the reader about the history of Israel from 1945 to 1948 from a familial point of view. So many of us read about the Holocaust and think the story ends there but it doesn't. Jerusalem; A Family Portrait takes you to a place where people leave the atrocities of WWII and go to Israel to fight another war for a Jewish homeland.

The graphic artwork is done in black and white, reflecting the horrors of war. There is a cast of characters and a family tree which is nice to refer back to when you get confused ( I sometimes confused the characters). There is also a background history of Jerusalem and the events leading up to this story. A map of the British Mandate of 1945 is also enclosed.

Jerusalem; A Family Portrait has left a lasting imprint on me. The characters (based on the authors family stories) are so compelling and the ending is so gripping that I don't think I will ever forget this story.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Outstanding 16 avril 2013
Par Nicola Mansfield - Publié sur Amazon.com
Absolutely outstanding! This chunkster of a graphic novel is a gripping read that I could not put down once started. It is one I already plan to re-read. Starting off with a map and couple pages of text we are given an historical background of Israel/Palestine up to the starting date of the book post-WWII 1945. Follows is a one page text background of the fictional family featured in the book up to this date as well. The reader is then fully immersed into the chaotic, war-torn life of a Jewish family whose members have differing viewpoints on the issues surrounding them. Very much a family story but heavily grounded in its political background. If, like me, you know of this conflict only from modern times, you will find the historical background of the making of Israel a compelling story. The author manages to give an even presentation showing no bias to either Jew or Arab, only coming off as being extremely anti-war and biased totally against the former British Commonwealth. The family story is heart-wrenching; there are moments of levity but mostly it is a dark tale of hatred and love. The b/w artwork is beautifully realistic though at times the realism of the atrocities of war can be painful to look at. A stunning book which I wouldn't be surprised to see on a few award lists for 2013.
