Description:
It is a tragedy that there is no memorial for those who perished in Babi Yar. The Soviet communist party did not think it was worthy of any special recognition. In fact, with the spread of government-inspired anti-Semitism between 1948 and 1953 the question of erecting a monument was dropped. For decades after the war ended the Soviet government declared there were no concentration camps in the USSR. The Germans had called Babi Yar a building site. Today the sight is covered with houses and a huge television centre (studio). No evidence of the crimes committed remains. The ashes were blown away and the bones buried deep under the earth. This book serves as the memorial.
