Israeli President Isaac Herzog joined his Ukrainian and German counterparts to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Babi Yar massacre.

On Sept. 29-30, 1941, more than 33,000 Jews from Kyiv — men, women and children — were systematically machine-gunned by the Nazis and Ukrainian collaborators and buried en masse in a ravine.

Herzog, along with Presidents Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine and Frank-Walter Steinmeier of Germany, inaugurated a memorial center where researchers released the names and testimonies of some of the people involved in the mass killing.
