Helga Deen. The Last Night.

White Mouse Publishing

Helga Deen, is a 32-page graphic novel with based on a true story created and directed by the international award-winning director Dario Picciau and award-winning writer Roberto Malini.

Helga Deen is an Holocaust Victim and the authoress of a diary, which is preserved today in the Regional Archive of Tilburg (Holland). She was in the final year of senior school in Tilburg when she and her family were arrested and deported to Vught on April 1st, 1943.

“We decided to dedicate a graphic novel to Helga Deen for the symbolic and educational value of her story, the story of her last night at Vught, when the german soldiers pulled hundreds of children from the sheds and sent them, in livestock wagons, to the gas chambers in Poland.

Helga Deen, like Anne Frank, has become a symbol of the Jewish girls and women of the Holocaust who in many cases sacrificed their own lives to ease the suffering of the most vulnerable people in the death camps.

Helga's story is a part of Humane Society's Heritage and today, more than ever, in a constantly changing world in which human values are being lost, it is important to remember it, in order to understand our present and to contribute to building a just and better future for the next generations". - Dario Picciau

Story Description:

Cognito is proud to present, in collaboration with best-selling author Stephen Kinzer, the true life spy thriller, CIA : Operation Ajax. As the value of oil explodes in world markets, global power brokers begin to take interest in the ruling political regimes of the Middle East. In Iran, British agents have controlled oil exports for a generation. The shah is holding on to a shaky peace as a new charismatic leader enters the scene. Secret deals, underground rumors of revolt, and dark plots of government overthrow are employed by American, British, and Persian agents. Iran's oil would flow, by any means necessary. Every actor has a stake in the game. No one can be trusted. Nothing is as it seems.

Learn about the incredible true history of the CIA plot to stage a coup of Iran's government. Recently declassified documents, historic photos, and actual film reels from the era are embedded into the story. See Eisenhower, Churchill, the Dulles brothers, Mossadegh, and the Shah in a whole new light.
