A historical exhibition entitled “The Road of Death” has recently opened in the Ukrainian capital to mark the 75th anniversary of the massacre of about 150,000 Nazi victims in Babi Yar.
The exposition, which is held in the Kiev Museum of History of Ukraine in the World War II (WWII), features more than 500 exhibits, including authentic photos and documents as well as personal belongings of the victims.
Besides, dozens of modern art installations, revealing the brutality of the Babi Yar massacre are displayed at the exhibition.
Babi Yar, a ravine in Kiev, was a site of series of massacres carried out by the Nazis during their campaign against the former Soviet Union at the times of the WWII.
The most notorious and the best documented of these massacres took place on Sept. 29, 1941, wherein 33,771 Jews were killed in a single operation.
The main aim of the exhibition is to provide a vivid picture of the developments in Kiev during the WWII and remind people that lessons of the war should be fully learned.
