Full description
There was a time when Babi Yar was just a deep ravine on the outskirts of Kiev. However, occupying German forces changed all that in September 1941 when they ordered 35,000 of Kiev’s Jewish residents to gather their belongings and march to Babi Yar. Thinking they would be transported to another location, they did as they were told and lined up along the ravine where the Nazi firing squads proceeded to execute them. Their bodies were thrown into the ravine below.

Throughout the Nazi occupation of Kiev, Babi Yar was used for mass killings. In all, over 100,000 people including partisans and members of the underground, but mostly Jews, were killed there. In 1991, a monument was erected near the site. Afterwards, you will visit the Museum World War II.
