The massacre began in late September 1941 when Nazi forces occupying Kiev marched Jews to the edge of a ravine at Babi Yar and shot them.
The massacre lasted days and more than 33,700 Ukrainian Jews were killed.
Altogether, Nazis executed more than 100,000 people, including Red Army prisoners, at the site.
