The Nazis murdered 100,000 people over a two-year period in the Kyiv ravine of Babyn Yar, including 34,000 Jews on Sept. 28-29, 1941. The Nazis and local auxiliaries exterminated the Jews as the Germany’s invading forces blitzed their way toward Moscow, capturing major cities in the west of the Soviet Union.
