Maus Panel Writing

The panel is rectangle that follows a round panel.

Vladek is trying to convince a polish train man to help him get home from the war.

What makes the panel important to me is the fact that Vladek’s character turns into a pig in this page exclusively. He pretends that he isn’t jewish but rather just polish and thus tries to win the train man’s favor. It also looks like he is wearing a pig mask which is symbolic of the mask he put on to hide the fact that he is jewish. The help from the train man is what allows Vladek to return to Anja and his parents so this panel is very important in terms of the overall plot because of difficult his journey would have been otherwise.
