Robert Singer: 'The world was silent 75 years ago. And it is silent now.'
On the 75th anniversary of the murder more than 33,000 Jews at Babi Yar, leaders of the World Jewish Congress (WJC) were in Ukraine to take part in events to remember the atrocity committed by Nazi Germany on 29/30 September 1941 near Kyiv. WJC CEO Robert Singer addressed the official commemorative event at the site of Babi Yar on Thursday evening. In his address, Robert Singer said: “Babi Yar was not the only killing field left by the Einsatzgruppen, the SS killing squads responsible for the quick and efficient killing of all Jews. Nearby at Kamenenetz-Podolsky, 23,600 Jews were murdered. At Nikolayev near Odessa, over 22,000 Jews were slaughtered. The Nazis left killing fields all over Europe.”
