Guardian Longread: The Threat to France’s Jews


In January 2015 a murderous attack by French born Islamists on the offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo was followed two days later by a siege at a kosher supermarket in Paris in which 4 Jewish shoppers were killed. This was the third time since 2006 that French Jews were murdered by fellow French citizens on French soil. The world’s gaze turned towards the situation of French Jews, who have been leaving France in increasing numbers over the last few years.

Six days after the attacks I published this piece in the Guardian.
