A Texas school district has come under fire for removing an Anne Frank dairy adaptation and 40 other books from its libraries.

The Keller Independent School District’s executive director of Keller ISD’s curriculum and instruction, Jennifer Price, wrote in an email to principals, obtained by The Texas Tribune, “Attached is a list of all books that were challenged last year. By the end of today, I need all books pulled from the library and classrooms. Please collect these books and store them in a location. (book room, office, etc.).”

The books include Anne Frank’s Diary: The Graphic Adaptation, the Bible and Gender Queer: A Memoir.

Twitter users blasted the move.
