This cartoon, by the political cartoonist Ruben Oppenheimer, has been made to respond to the ‘Hitler was Right’ poster plastered on the Birmingham University campus two weeks ago.

The student Izzy Lenga photographed the poster and posted it on her Twitter account to show people who don’t think antisemitism isn’t a serious issue the proof that antisemitism is still alive in the British society. After her tweet, Izzy Lenga was attacked by trolls sending her abusive tweets and antisemitic offences.

The university has reported the incident of the poster to the police, which has been investigating to identify who is responsible.

This is not an isolated case. The hashtag #Hitlerwasright is shared daily on Twitter, together with insults against the Jews or celebrations of white nationalism.
