babiy yar menorah

babiy yar menorah
Originally uploaded by mwc134.

today was a little more low-key than before

first mike (see blog link to the right) and i went to protovska, a huge (black)market on the outskirts of town and i was thoroughly impressed. picked up a lot of goods (best buy: all three back to the future dvds for 5 dollars!!!).

after that we went to babiy yar - which, as mikes already covered, is the site where the nazis masacred the jews of kiev - then everyone else. it was pretty sobering...

i was kind of surprised at the lack of memorials on site. above is a memorial devoted to the jews, but it wasnt installed until the late 90s.

anyway, it was an interesting day if not a little depressing.
