animation a classic anti-war story
Wulf Zendik wrote Don’t
Go, a moving and graphic anti-war tale, in 1969 during the
Vietnam War. When it was first released, it was published in
newspaper form by both the Los Angeles Free Press and the London
International Times. Arol also published Don't Go as a booklet,
which was distributed nationally by Doubleday Press. In New York
City, radio stations played readings of it over the air on
Moratorium Day, with the Doors’ "The End" behind it.
Don’t Go has had a huge impact. Anti-war activists across the
U.S. and the world xeroxed and distributed it throughout the
underground press, and Wulf received letters from all over—from
soldiers in Vietnam, and from those who stayed out of the
war—thanking him for understanding what they were up against.
Wulf also sent a copy of Don't Go to Erich Maria Remarque,
author of All Quiet on the Western Front, thanking him for his
tough inspirational book, which turned Wulf against the insanity
of war at a very young age. Remarque replied with a warm letter
of gratitude, citing the power of Don't Go.
Don’t Go has been translated into 5 languages and has won
several international awards. Revel and Kyro have now animated
this classic work of art, making its message all the more
immediate and powerful.
