About 300 people paid tribute Monday to the victims of a Nazi massacre of tens of thousands of Jews at the Babi Yar ravine ahead of the 65th anniversary of the tragedy. Survivors, Ukrainian and Israeli officials and soldiers bowed their heads during a moment of silence and laid flowers at a monument to the dead near central Kiev, near the ravine where the killings took place. The massacre began in late September 1941 when Nazi forces occupying Kiev marched Jews to the brink of the steep Babi Yar ravine and shot them. The massacre lasted days and more than 33,700 Ukrainian Jews were killed. The Babi Yar massacre followed weeks of grenade attacks against German troops staged by Soviet resistance groups. Nazis accused Jews of carrying out the attacks.
