Commemoration of the 80th anniversary of the mass shootings in Babyn Yar

30 вересня 2021 року

September 29-30 commemorates the 80th anniversary of the beginning of the mass shootings carried out by the Nazis in Babyn Yar (September 29-30, 1941).








This year marks the 80th anniversary of the mass shootings of the Jewish population in Babyn Yar. 34,000 civilians in Kyiv were shot dead here. Over the years of the war, more than 100,000 people have been killed here - Jews, Ukrainians, Romany (Gypsies), people of other nationalities - as well as prisoners of war, psychiatric hospital patients and other victims of the Nazi extermination machine.
Mass shootings in Babyn Yar and Syretsky concentration camp were carried out later, until the liberation of Kyiv from occupation. The crime lasted almost 103 weeks every Tuesday and Friday like clockwork
September 30, 2021 in groups 2 and 3 Philology was an educational hour, timed to the events of September 29-30, 1941 in Babyn Yar.
Curator Valentyna Borshchovetska and monitors Diana Lee and Iryna Kabak acquainted students with the events of those days. Students from the two groups prepared touching information that reflected the events of that time. Students had the opportunity to watch a video of one of the eyewitnesses of the sad events, who was a child and who managed to survive. The students observed a minute of silence in memory of the Holocaust victims.
МWe need to know our history, remember those terrible events, and live so that it never happens again.

Nobody is forgotten, nothing is forgotten…

A group of philologists 20001b prepared a presentation and also mentioned the events of the fall of 1941. Curator Olena Turitsyna arranged a screening of the film "Schindler's List" in English.

A group of philologists 20002b together with curator Inna Serhienko watched a documentary on this day dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the tragedy in Babyn Yar. The students also shared their impressions of the film "The Boy in striped pajamas".



Students of group Phil A 21001b together with curator Holtsova M.H. reviewed the documentary "Babyn Yar: how the Nazis wanted to hide their crimes", as well as the English-language film "Pianist", after which an educational hour was held about this terrible tragedy, which we have no right to forget.
The memory of the Holocaust and Babyn Yar, in particular, is also a tribute to the saviors, the Righteous Among the Nations. This honorary title has been awarded since 1963 to people who saved Jews from persecution and death during the Nazi occupation. Today, Ukraine ranks fourth in the number of Righteous Among the Nations among the countries in which the facts of salvation of Jews have been established.
