Whatever happened to former DC editor Jordan Gorfinkel? Well, for one thing, he’s just completed a comic strip that decorates the walls of the new Jewish Museum in Munich, Germany:
In a panel of Jordan Gorfinkel’s “Everything’s Relative” comic strip, Holocaust survivor Zayds explains why he won’t visit Germany.
“I’m trying not to remember vhut everyvun else must not forget,” says Zayds, who appears larger than life on the walls of the new Jewish Museum in Munich.
The cartoon Zayds eventually goes to Germany. But the person he’s based on — Gorfinkel’s father-in-law, Nathan Burzinski — can’t do it.
“It’s not the ribbon tied into the neat bow that, being a writer, I wanted,” Gorfinkel said.
The 40 panels are silk-screened onto the walls of the museum and can be read from 50 feet away.
