The second book goes more into depth and detail about Art's father Vladek and his survival through the holocaust. Vladek tells Art how he was seperated from Anja and taken to Auschwitz, he becomes very sick multiple times at the concentration camp, but being sick actually aided him in his survival. When being sick he would get three meals a day and his own bed in the infrimary. But eventually he was founded out for continually infecting his own hand. Later on in the story Vladek gets herded for miles to a small camp in Germany, this camp has no gas chambers and he is alive for a little longer. The story goes on with Vladek running and hiding from the Germans and eventually being saved by the Americans while hiding in a house in Germany.
