About the place

The first mentions of the Babyn Yar tract are found in records of the early 15th century. But in the modern context, this is primarily a world-famous site of tragedy, the largest international cemetery in Ukraine that has become a symbol of the Holocaust. In 1941–1943, more than 100,000 civilians (mostly Jews and Roma), prisoners of war, resistance fighters, partisans, hostages, members of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists, mentally ill and others were executed by shooting here.

In 1961, Babyn Yar became the epicentre of another disaster, the Kurenivka tragedy. Then, as a result of the breach of the dam, a mud flow up to 14 meters high took the lives of hundreds of people who lived nearby.

In 2022, 81 years after the Second World War, the tragedy of genocide in the Babyn Yar repeated in the course of Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine.

More than 20 monuments have been erected in and around the Babyn Yar. Currently, a large Memorial Centre is expected to be built in the territory.
