Babi Yar

“All the Jews of the city Kiev and its surrounding areas are to appear on Monday 29 of September of the year 1941 by 8 o’clock in the morning at the corner of Melnika and Docterivski streets (near the cemeteries).

Bring with you documents, money and valuables, as well as warm clothes, underwear etc.

Who of the Jews will not follow this order and found elsewhere, will be shot.

Who of the citizens enters the Jews’ homes and collects possessions, will be shot.”

And then, what is considered to be the largest single massacre in the history of the Holocaust (if you believe wikipedia, that is) happened.
