Senior police officer in Ukraine city demands addresses of all Jews


It’s reminiscent of what happened in Nazi Germany, when Adolf Hitler demanded that Jewish synagogues provide the names and addresses of all their members.

According to Jacob Zalichker, the leader of the Jewish community in the city of Kolomyya, he received a letter from a high ranking police officer in the city on Feb. 18, 2020 requesting the names, addresses and mobile phone numbers of all the Jews in the city.

The police were demanding the names to battle “transnational crimes.”

Zalichker has refused to provide the information without a court order, but went public with the letter calling it “open antisemitism.”

Approximately one million Ukrainian Jews were killed in the Nazi Holocaust.
