June 3 marked the 76th anniversary of the Madagascar Plan. Conceived as an alternative means to achieving the Final Solution, the plan called for the mass-deportation of European Jewry to Vichy-controlled Madagascar, where those who did not die en route would be exterminated far from the prying eyes of the international community.
The Jewish journalist who shed a light on the tactic used by far-right activists to identify Jews on Twitter so they can be attacked has quit the social media platform over its handling of antisemitic abuse.
Jews on Twitter and Facebook have started putting triple parentheses around their names - as above - as a way of hitting back at antisemitic internet trolls.
Called "echoes" by the neo-Nazis and white supremacists who invented them, these parentheses are named after the echo sound effect used to mark out Jewish names in the right-wing hate podcast "The Daily Shoah".
