Kiev – The monument commemorating Jewish victims of the Babi Yar
massacre in Kiev was desecrated for the fourth time in recent months, possibly
on Adolf Hitler’s birthday.


The perpetrators sprayed a swastika on the “Menorah” monument marking
the slaughter of more than 33,000 Jews in 1941 by Nazi occupation forces and
their collaborators.


The desecration of the monument at Babi Yar, one of the largest single
killing operations of the Holocaust, may have been timed to coincide with
Hitler’s April 20 birthday, according to the report by the website, affiliated
with a not-for-profit that monitors antisemitic incidents in Ukraine.
