A Holocaust survivor and mother, Katin's world is turned upside down by the news that her adult son is moving to Berlin, a city she's villainized for the past forty years. As she struggles to accept her son's decision, she visits the city twice, first to see her son and then to attend a museum gala featuring her own artwork. What she witnesses firsthand is a city coming to terms with its traumatic past, much as Katin is herself.

Gorgeous coloured-pencil illustrations, but weak story-telling.

Interesting territory covered in this unique graphic novel

The art is interesting and unique. The story is choppy, however.

"A companion to We Are On Our Own, Letting It Go shows Katin, now an adult, dealing with her son Ilan's recent move to Berlin. As she struggles to accept his decision, she realises that her hesitations have more to do with long-held grudges than any sort of legitimate concern."
