Babi Yar

By John Wear

One of the worst atrocities attributed to the Einsatzgruppen was the Babi Yar massacre, which allegedly occurred in a large ravine outside Kiev in the Ukraine. The allegation is that Einsatzgruppe C rounded up 33,771 Jews in Kiev and shot all of them over the period September 29-30, 1941.[i] German Reserve Police Battalion 45 and Police Battalion 303 are said to have assisted in the operation.[ii] This article will examine the veracity of these allégations.
