Bridge Monument
At Babi Yar Memorial, learn about the tragic events that took place here and see monuments dedicated to the victims of one of the largest massacres during the Holocaust. Surrounded by hills, flowers, and lush greenery lie statues that artistically commemorate those who lost their lives. Following orders of the Nazi regime, 33,771 Jews arrived with all their belongings on September 29, 1941. The next day they were executed. You'll see crosses and busts dedicated to these Jewish citizens, as well as memorials to a number of other nationals who perished in the following years.
