Babi Yar Memorial
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

This memorial stands at Babi Yar, the ravine then on the city limits of Kiev where the German army (with the assistance of the Ukrainian police) massacred the town's Jewish population in 1941. The German army records note 33,771 Jews shot here in two days. Yevgeny Yevtushenko's famous poem which first brought attention to the massacre in the Soviet Union began 'At Babi Yar there is no monument'. Now there is this one, with tablets in Russian, Ukrainian and Yiddish which state that over 100,000 'citizens of Kiev and prisoners of war' were executed there.

What a horror and a tragedy the Nazis brought on the Ukraine! May these people rest in peace.
