KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Ukraine’s Holocaust memorial center has revealed the names of 159 Nazi SS troops who took part in the killing of Jews during the Babi Yar massacre in Ukraine eight decades after one of the most infamous Nazi mass slaughters of World War II. Nearly 34,000 Jews were killed within 48 hours in the Babi Yar ravine in the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv when the city was under Nazi occupation in 1941. SS troops carried out the massacre with local collaborators. The presidents of Ukraine, Israel and Germany are attending a ceremony in Kyiv on Wednesday to remember the victims. Natan Sharansky of the Babi Yar Holocaust memorial center says “we are going to give the real faces to the Holocaust.”
