History Lesson: How Several Cartoonists Confronted Kristallnacht

There's an intriguing article here about the attempt and subsequent failure of several cartoonists to get the United States to consider the horrors of Kristallnacht more directly; it's part of a forthcoming Craig Yoe packaged (and co-authored) effort at IDW. I'm always fascinated by material on Edmund Duffy, an all-but-forgotten figure in cartooning now but then a much-honored cartoonist in addition to being what we might today describe as the Ralph Steadman to HL Mencken's Hunter Thompson.
