Easy access with the metro to Dorohozhychi. Vast and beautiful park that covers the horrors of over 33 000 jews and later also other groups shot and buried here. Good information tablets and several monuments.

People often assosiate Holocaust with the gas chambers of Auschwitz. But actually that was only the last phase in the crime of Holocaust. Holocaust begin as a "Shoa by bullets" in which German soldiers (Einsatzgruppen), helped by the local militia, police and partisans, shot Jews...More

Once a scene of mass executions during WW2 Babyn Yar is now a large city park with numerous memorials to the people who died here. It is a peaceful, serene park physically, but alive with people, particularly children. There are many explanatory signs and displays...More
