A grainy photo captures a cold-blooded murder in action. Men
in uniform shoot a woman and two children for the “crime” of being Jewish.
This rare photographic evidence shows how Jewish families were brutally
murdered—often with local cooperation—during Germany’s invasion of the
Soviet Union in 1941. As many as two million Jews were killed with bullets
and at associated massacres across former Soviet territory.
Request a reminder to learn more on the 80th
anniversary of one of the largest of these mass shootings, at the Babi Yar
(Babyn Yar) ravine northwest of Kiev, where close to 34,000 Jewish men,
women, and children were gunned down in two days.
