Babyn Yar 29th/30th September 1941

Exactly 75 years ago, between the 29th and 30th of September 1941 the Nazis killed 33.000 Jewish people outside Kiew in an mass execution that lasted 36 hours.
This massacre was one of many only and there were only 29 survivors.
In Dmitri Shostakovich’s 13th Symphony the first movement ( titled ‘Babi Yar’ ) deals with this gargantuan atrocity.
