In history of course this is a terrible place. Visiting it can be a little confusing in terms of orientating yourself. Essentially, you have to just walk, and take in the rather peaceful atmosphere, as there are many small memorials but it is just a...More

Awestruck by the perpetration of the atrocities at this site. I have seen documentaries about it on U.S. TV, but just standing in the area where they were performed was overwhelming. I cannot imagine the pain that was inflicted on these poor people. The park...More

I'm glad we took time to visit this lovely spot. The memorial is beautiful and so moving to see the depth and breadth of the ravine.

If you've studied history chances are you've seen footage of Jewish people being lined up along ravines and murdered. I was shocked to find the ravine not marked, the Jewish memorial was smaller in comparison to the other memorials and most shocking of all, the...More

This is a bit of a walk from the metro but it is through the park so can be a pleasant walk. There is very little to see when you get there just a couple of memorials but it feels important to go and I...More

My family lost many relatives here. It was a powerful memorial that only recently (1991) officially acknowledged that Jewish people were killed here. Until then, the Soviet Union refused to acknowledge them. (In fact, there is a huge memorial put up decades ago that mentions...More
