<br />
In the course of two days, September 2930, 1941, German Nazis and their collaborators murdered 33,771 Jewish civilians there. The Babi Yar massacre is considered to be &quot;the largest single massacre in the history of the Holocaust.&quot;.<br />
<br />
In the months that followed, many more people were seized and taken to Babi Yar where they were shot. It is estimated that more than 100,000 people, mostly civilians, of whom a significant number were Jews, were executed by the Nazis there during the Second World War.<br />
<br />
Babi Yar is located in the middle of three subdivisions of Kiev: Kurenivka, Lukianivka and Syrets. In modern Kiev, Babi Yar is located between the Frunze and Melnykov streets and between the St. Cyril's Monastery and Olena Teliha street.<br />
