Many horrific crimes against humanity were carried out during World War II. The massacre at Babi Yar was one of the most shocking. German officials reported that 33,771 Jewish people living in Kiev had been killed during the massacre of 29-30 September, 1941. The civilians were herded to the ravine under the pretext of resettlement, before being murdered by SS soldiers using machine guns. The Nazis continued to use Babi Yar as a place of execution throughout the war; it has been estimated over 100,000 people of many nationalities were killed there.
