Furthermore, the Jewish Public Library of Montreal, in the Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough, has had all of Elise Gravel's books removed from its shelves. The general director of the establishment, Alain Dancyger, confirmed the information to Radio-Canada this morning, although refusing to comment on the matter.

Children's author Elise Gravel sometimes uses her drawings to show her support for the Palestinian people of Gaza. On her social networks, she was accused of spreading anti-Semitic remarks, which she refuted.

No, my publications are not anti-Semitic, she wrote yesterday. I am against all forms of racism and discrimination, including anti-Semitism. I also condemn the extreme violence of the Israeli government, and this government does not represent the ideas of all Jews in the world, nor even those of the entire Israeli population.

Elise Gravel had already been the subject of censorship in February 2023, this time in the United States.

Elise Gravel adds that although her books are engaged and filled with various educational messages for children, they do not highlight any political point of view related to the war between Israel and Hamas.

She clarified that even if she is a children's author, her platform can be used for other purposes, without linking her positions to her work intended for children.< /p>

Social media is not for children and neither are the posts I share here. I'm speaking to adults and I don't think your little ones will be interested in learning more about Netanyahu. For my children's content, check out my books (or burn them if you like), she wrote.

Remember that The National Assembly had already condemned the censorship of Elise Gravel's books in February 2023, after her work Pink, Blue and You!, which deals with sexual orientation and gender identity, has been banned in some American schools.
