BABI YAR TODAY: TOPOGRAPHY OF TERROR

Even 80 years after the dramatic events in Kyiv, a number of issues are to be clarified. With this article, I initiate a series of materials on the Babi yar massacre. As a Ukrainian myself, the primary aim is to help the ‘Western readers’ to grasp this topic, including the Eastern front, occupation of Ukraine, the Holocaust. To eliminate the blind historical spots and distortion of facts, step by step, with the most appraised scholarly of the last decades. I have invested almost two months in reading and searching up to 30 books, recent findings, primary sources, including now available bulk of German documents, first-account testimonies, topographic maps: all to write this quite volumed 8000-word article with plenty of photos: both unique historical and my own ones in 2020.

More than always, I would appreciate your feedback on this material, which indeed fuels me with enthusiasm to keep traveling, reading, and writing.
