Ukraine soldiers stand guard at the Babiy Yar monument in Kiev on Sept. 29 during a remembrance ceremony marking the 71st anniversary of the beginning of mass execution of Jews by the Nazis in September 1941. Some 34,000 Jews were murdered over two days in September 1941 on Babyn Yar, a plaza in Kyiv, rendering it a symbol of the Holocaust where Nazis shot more than 100,000 people between 1941 and 1944.
