A Jewish woman was walking through the Toronto neighbourhood of East Danforth when she noticed a menacing emblem on a home’s porch in August of 2018.

The symbol, made from wood and nailed to the home’s front stairs, was strikingly similar to the SS Nazi symbol. The double lightning bolt symbol, which is called a Schutzstaffel, was used from 1925 to 1945 and was used by the Nazi’s Protection Squadron.
