Memorial events at Yad Vashem to mark 70th anniversary of Babi Yar

6/10/2011 - A memorial event marking 70 years since the murder of the Jews in Ukraine, including the massacres at Babi Yar and adjacent areas, will be held at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem.

The wreath-laying ceremony will take place in partnership with the Association of Ukrainian immigrants in Israel, in the Hall of Remembrance with the participation of Israeli Minister of Public Affairs and the Diaspora Yuli Edelstein and Ukrainian Minister of Culture Mykhailo Kulynyak.

70 years ago this week, 33,771 Jews were murdered in Babi Yar, near Kiev, the Ukrainian capital.

As the German army advanced eastward in the fall of 1941, similar mass murders of Jews took place throughout the region during this period.
