Dark Horse to publish the English translation of “We’ll Soon Be Home Again” in March 2020
This is one of those comics that can speak for itself, so I’ll be brief. Next year, Dark Horse will publish an English translation of the Swedish graphic novel We’ll Soon Be Home Again. In the historical graphic novel, six Holocaust survivor’s stories are presented, and the grief, terror, and heartache are on full display. It’s also a book of hope, as the release says the survivors tells the stories of “what they lost — and how you keep on living, despite it all.”
We’ll be on the lookout for this one, for sure. Check out the details below.

DARK HORSE TO PUBLISH “WE’LL SOON BE HOME AGAIN”
Award-Winning Graphic Novel Available for Purchase in March 2020
MILWAUKIE, Ore. (August 26, 2019) – Originally published by Natur & Kultur in Sweden in 2018, Dark Horse’s We'll Soon Be Home Again is a translation of the award-winning Swedish comic by writer Jessica Bab Bonde and artist Peter Bergting (Joe Golem, The Dark North).
In We'll Soon Be Home Again, the testimonies of six Holocaust survivors are presented in comics form. All of them were children then, and are still alive to tell what happened to them and their families. How they survived. What they lost—and how you keep on living, despite it all. Using the first-person point of view allows the stories to get under your skin as survivors describe their persecutions in the Ghetto, the de-humanization and the starvation in the concentration camps, and the industrial-scale mass murder taking place in the extermination camps.
When right-wing extremism and antisemitism are being evoked once again, We'll Soon Be Home Again is the alarm-bell needed to remind us never to forget the horrors of the Holocaust.
We’ll Soon Be Home Again will be available in comic shops on March 25, 2020 and other retailers on April 7.
