Kyiv, Ukraine

. . . William Daroff, CEO, and Malcolm Hoenlein, Vice Chair of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, are participating in the 80th anniversary of the Babyn Yar massacre this week in Kyiv, Ukraine.

Last week marked the 80th anniversary of one of the greatest atrocities of the Second World War. On September 29-30, 1941, Nazi commandos and their Ukrainian collaborators rounded up the Jews of their capital city of Kyiv and marched them to a ravine called Babyn Yar. There, the 33,771 men, women, and children were stripped, beaten and then machine-gunned to death. Because they were Jews.
