"Jesus Charlie", par Lisa Mandel.

Lisa Mandel





I was born in a very observant far-left family. God and Father Christmas don’t exist. What exists? The Class struggle!



Mandel 4

I grew up in religious gatherings.

On the 7th of January 2015 it was the terrorist attack.  I was beside myself. I called up my mother, and was for a moment in tears,  unable to speak. It’s as if I lost a member of our family.

I took part in the spontaneous demonstrations, it was beautiful….

I would like to thank Lisa for making my day.

Lisa Mandel (no relation, as far as I can find, to Ernest Mandel) is the daughter of Health Service workers. She is a cartoonist. These images are taken from Le Monde des livres (Friday): Après l’attentat contre « Charlie Hebdo », la BD solidaire.
