(Times of Israel) Dr. Seuss isn’t a narrative form typically associated with the Holocaust, but a group of students in Boston channeled the iconic children’s book author for their recently wrapped film.
"Wallace Seeks Solace" is a five-minute, live-action short about 11-year-old Wallace’s experience in the Holocaust. Dr. Seuss-style narration and dialogue portray the Jewish boy’s journey from innocence into a world of Nazi brutality.
The story begins in Poland, with Wallace in bed as Nazis conspire to deport the town’s Jews.

"In his blue bumpy bed, some people say, if one closed their eyes, the demons would just go away," says a narrator. "For Wallace understood. For just as long as he could. Until that damn dreadful day. He was taken away."
