message 1: by Craig (new)

Craig Well, I love Dr. Seuss, but he was never Jewish. He did write Yertle the Turtle, which was anti-fascist, as well as tons of cartoons attacking Hitler, but he was a terrific gentile, not a Jews.

I guess you're right. I assumed he was, and given the # of votes he got on this list, I guess I wasn't the only one. I will delete all his books. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.


message 3: by Bruno (new)

Bruno Ramos Undoubtable a great list, but where is Clarice Lispector?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads It's pretty easy to add books to lists; at the top of the list, at the tab next to "all votes."


message 5: by NancyJ (new)

NancyJ William Styron, Sophie's Choice was not Jewish. His main character (an Auschwitz survivor) was not even Jewish. This caused an outcry at the time.
