Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Art Vladek vs Has bad parenting skills.Whenever his son is havinga hard time he diminishes hisproblems and relates it to him surviving the holocaust. Through out his childhood he never had to gothrough many hard ships hisparents took great care of himleaving him with no worries. Art explains to his psychologist "No matter what I accomplish it doesn't seem like much compared to surviving Auschwitz." (Maus II, 44). "I know this sounds insane but i somehow wish I had been in Auschwitz with my parents." (Maus II, 16). These characteristics are why Art and Vladek will never have a great father son relationship. Vladek went through the holocaust with family. Very frugal he will pick up trash or findthings that benefit him. "What did you pick up? Vladek:telephone wire. It's very hardto find. You always pick up trash!Can't you just buy wire?" (Maus I, 116) Lost many people who werevery close to him during the holocaust. He lost his parents,his wife, and his first child Richieu. Is very successful in lifehad great business skillswhich he used to get ahead in the business world. Complains about having bad friends. Vladek says "If you lock them together in a room with no food then you see who your friends are." (Maus I, 6) Art doesn't understand why his father wont buythings when he will just pickthem up off the street. Very artistic and has great imagry. Vladek and Art are very different people going through completely different experiences. Their relationship is very strained and can never fully recover after a lifetime of a broken relationship. Arts mother committed suicide, and earlier that morning. "Artie you still love me don't you? Sure Ma." (Maus I, 103) this makes Art feel horriblebecause in his mind he could have stopped her by saying something more important in response. Kenny Rajala
