The leaflet begins, "Dear Ukraine citizens of Jewish nationality," and states that all people of Jewish descent over 16 years old must report to the Commissioner for Nationalities in the Donetsk Regional Administration building and "register."
The leaflet then described which documents Jews should provide: "ID and passport are required to register your Jewish religion, religious documents of family members, as well as documents establishing the rights to all real estate property that belongs to you, including vehicles."
Consequences for non-compliance will result in citizenship being revoked "and you will be forced outside the country with a confiscation of property." A registration fee of $50 would be required, it said.
This is where it starts. No, that's not fair - it's been brewing for some time. Economic challenges, political shenanigans and stagnant attitudes have fueled resentment in Europe which itself has allowed for the growing creep of nationalist populism.
Left unchecked, we know where this ends.
I hate to think my sons may have no choice but to refight the battles of my grandfather's generation. But if that's what it takes, that's what we'll do.
