Babyn Yar was one of the many sites used by the nazis for the mass execution of the Jewish population during the second world war. It can be visited fairly easily by taking the Kiev metro (green line 3) to Dorohozhychi and walking from there....More

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

This is truly a humbling place with the memories of those affected preserved in a memorable way. The site is well preserved and the monument is beautiful. The energy is haunting. Everyone should visit just to remember what can happen!

The location of the original massacre is down by the TV station and not in the main park. I walked most of the site and found the actual ravine which I found chilling, to say the least.

There are a series of boards in english as well as Ukranian which is quite enlightening. The park is plesant and spread out. The area is easily accessed from the metro. Certainly worth a wander for an hour or so.

In history of course this is a terrible place. Visiting it can be a little confusing in terms of orientating yourself. Essentially, you have to just walk, and take in the rather peaceful atmosphere, as there are many small memorials but it is just a...More

Awestruck by the perpetration of the atrocities at this site. I have seen documentaries about it on U.S. TV, but just standing in the area where they were performed was overwhelming. I cannot imagine the pain that was inflicted on these poor people. The park...More
