Last week, a disturbing notice surfaced online ordering Jewish citizens in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk to register with the pro-Russian authorities or face deportation. The notice was posted up near a synagogue in Donetsk and was allegedly published by the pro-Russian authorities, bearing the the Donetsk People’s Republic insignia. However, Denis Pushilin, the leader of the Donetsk People’s Republic, has denied any responsibility. Regardless of who is responsible for this notice, it serves as a chilling reminder that almost 70 years since the end of World War II which saw the mass murder of approximately six million Jews, anti-semitism remains alive and well.
