The Most Important Panel in Maus: Chapter 3 – Prisoner of War

In my opinion, one of the most important panels from Chapter 3 was the one describing Vladek’s dream. The panel is horizontal, with the dark background, showing us sleeping Vladek and his dead grandfather. In the dream, his grandfather came to him and said: “You will come out of this place-free!..on the day of Parshas Truma.” I think this panel is extremely important due to the fact, that this dream gave him hope to be free again. Moreover, this dream came true and he went home to his family.
