Event details
Calendar   General
Location Virtually via Zoom
Date Wed, Jul 17, 7:00pm - 8:00pm
Duration   1h

Using aerial photographs, ground photographs, and extensive eye-witness testimony, author and historical consultant Dr. Martin C. Dean examined the topography of Babyn Yar, located in modern-day Ukraine, to shed new light on one the largest mass shootings of Jews in German-occupied Europe. His recently published work, Investigating Babyn Yar: Shadows from the Valley of Death, pieces together the story of the destruction of Kyiv’s Jews from September 29 to 30, 1941 using history’s shattered fragments, tracing their journey out of the city, and using discarded clothing and distinctive terrain as a trail of breadcrumbs to identify the killing site in the ravine. Dean joins us to discuss the Babyn Yar massacre, describe efforts by Jews to flee the city, and recount the Nazis’ attempt to cover up their crimes before hastily retreating the city.
