On Friday, September 29, Kyiv residents and officials will gather in Dorohozhychi neighborhood in the Ukrainian capital; they are going to pay tribute to the victims of the Babyn Yar tragedy, the horrific mass murder, which occurred in Kyiv in September 1941.
One of the exits from Dorohozhychi subway station will be shut off in the noon, as a public security measure.
Babyn Yar (Babi Yar) tragedy is credited as probably as the toughest war crime in the WWII. In September 1941, this ravine, located in Kyiv, became the graveyard for thousands of Jews, Ukrainians, Russians, Roma, Soviet POWs, political opponents and insane people. On September 29 and 30 alone, the Nazis murdered over 3,000 Jews.
