While Babi Yar in Kyiv is the most famous symbol of this international tragedy, the Holocaust by bullets occurred across Ukraine and Eastern Europe. The Soviet regime erased the memory of the victims of the Nazis for half a century. Together we will learn and remember as we memorialize and honor the victims of the Holocaust by bullets.
