Based on the relationship between Art and Vladek, using quotes from the text to illustrate how the holocaust remains a part of their lives after the holocaust was over.

Vladek- “It would take many books, my life, and no one wants anyway to hear such stories.”
Initially Vladek doesn't want to share his stories, they are simply too painful to return to. Although he tries to lock them away, they still haunt him.
Artie- “You always pick up trash! Can’t you just buy wire.”
Vladek's incessant hoarding is a trait left over from his days during the war. Finding and re-using things, in part, enabled Vladek to survive. Vladek still can't stop doing it in peacetime. This drives Artie crazy.
