Drawing on the Palestinian plight

Joe Sacco uses cartoons to tell the story of mass killings in Gaza in 1956.



    Joe Sacco has brought the plight of the Palestinians to people across the world - but he is not a journalist, historian or human rights activist, he is a cartoonist.

    In his most recent work he investigated the mass killing of Palestinians in Gaza in 1956.

    He told Al Jazeera why he uses comics to tell their story.
