Jews ordered to Register in East Ukraine

posted on April 17, 2014

USA Today reports that Jews in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk were ordered to “register” with Ukrainians seeking to become part of Russia. The article states, “Jews emerging from a synagogue say they were handed leaflets that ordered the city’s Jews to provide a list of property they own and pay a registration fee ‘or else have their citizenship revoked, face deportation and see their assets confiscated.’” Olga Resnikova, a Jewish Donetsk resident, said, “We don’t know if these notifications were distributed by pro-Russian activists or someone else, but it’s serious that it exists. The text reminds of the fascists in 1941.”
