    Babi Yar

    Under the supervision of SS, Soviet POWs dig in the ravine at Babi Yar outside of Kiev. Over the following months, between 70,000-200,000 people were led to the ravine and shot. While the majority were local Jews, the dead include partisans, members of the underground, NKVD operatives, gypsies, and 752 psychiatric patients under the care of Ivan Pavlov. Of the tens of thousands shot at Babi Yar, only 29 are known to have survived the horror.
