Babi Yar Memorial @ Babi Yar Park

Join us for our annual Babi Yar Memorial, to honor the victims of the Holocaust

74 YEARS AGO, thousands of Jews were slaughtered by the Nazis in a ravine in the Ukraine at a place called Babi Yar.  The Mizel Museum, Jewish Family Service, and other community partners are hosting this year’s Babi Yar Memorial to honor the memories of those lost during the massacre at Babi Yar, Ukraine, and other victims of the Holocaust.

The program features Deborah Yalen, Associate Professor of History at Colorado State University, Fort Collins, a scholar of Soviet Jewish culture in the interwar period.  This service will also include remarks from Jessica Millstein, a Holocaust education advocate and the granddaughter of Babi Yar survivors, and a musical performance and readings of Holocaust writings by local school children.

Babi Yar Park is located at Havana and Yale in southeast Denver, seating is limited and attendees can bring blankets and chairs to enjoy the program from the park lawns.
