    Default Kiev. Babiy Yar massacre. 1941. Very Graphic

    In this album we show photos which testify the mass murder at Babi Yar. The first part (red arrows) of photos were taken by Johannes Hähle, a military photographer with the German Propaganda-Kompanie 637 of the 6th Army. He took the photos most probably on 1 October 1941. Hähle died in 1944.
    All his photos are from a single roll of 36 mm AGFA COLOR film. On the roll all frames are numbered. The first two frames have been destroyed. Therefore only 29 photos still exist.
    At the beginning of the 1950's, his widow sold the roll to the widow of the Berlin journalist Hans Georg Schultz. In 1961 copies of the photos were acquired by the lawyer Wagner in Darmstadt in connection with the investigation of Sonderkommando 4a's crimes. The copies ended up in the Hessen Staatsarchiv in Germany. In the year 2000 Mrs. Schultz sold the original photos to the Hamburg Institute for Social Research.

    Warning Graphic!
    Murdered men on the edges of the sidewalks. Location: the right side of Pobeda ("Victory") Avenue. Ukrainian passers-by are going to "Yevbaz" (Yevreyskiy / Jevrejskiz (Jewish) bazaar (market).

    Ukrainian passers-by are going to "Yevbaz". Location: the right side of Pobeda ("Victory") Avenue. After the occupation the markets were the only place where people could buy or exchange their things for food. People went by foot because trams were not operating, and only Germans had cars.

    The murdered men are probably Jews who did not arrive on 29 September at the designated place, as ordered, and were shot.
    Location: the right side of Pobeda ("Victory") Avenue.
    After having taken these photos Hähle went to Babi Yar.

    When Hähle came to Babi Yar he entered the ravine, and was overwhelmed by the huge quantities of belongings of the murdered Jews. He seized the opportunity, and took some photos of the possessions of the victims

    Possessions of the victims. German soldiers are searching the clothes for valuables.

    POWs in the ravine. The Germans needed physically fit men for this task.

    In early October 1941 about 300 POWs were taken to the ravine to bury the bodies. In the photo approximately 150 of them level the earth over the mass graves, guarded by German soldiers.

    According to the interrogation protocol of the former POW B. V. Sokolov he confirmed that in October 1941 about 300 POWs were taken to the ravine to bury the bodies. In the photo they level the earth over the mass graves. The German soldier (foreground) is showing Ukrainian women the workers in the ravine.

    This photo was taken at the corner of Kerosinnaja and Lagernaja Streets, near the "Zenit" Stadium. Ukrainan women (in all probability) tried to learn about the fate of their relatives, who possibly resided in nearby barracks.

    This photo was taken not far from Yevbaz. The murdered men are probably POWs, judging by their haircut and their exhausted frames. Warning Graphic!

    Blocked road. Traffic control.

    POWs busy with repair works, and a German escort.

    Among other things Hähle took a few photos of important buildings and scenery. This is the western facade of the Kievo-Pecherskij Monastery (Lavra). It was blown up later, on 3 November 1941.

    Empty streets, here and there remaining barricades. Courageous inhabitants are to be seen. The city is ruled by the Germans.
    This photo was taken at the corner of Kominterna and Zhilyanskaja Streets.


    St. Andrew's Church, as if nothing has happened at the northwestern outskirts of the city.

    building of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Ukraine, on Mikhajlovskaja Square.

    This photo shows a destroyed bridge over the Dnieper river. It is double exposed because of broken perforation of the film, and

    This photos contains mainly photos (black and white) which were taken by the Soviet Extraordinary State Commission (ChGK) in 1943, after the Nazis' retreat from the killing site. These photos show Babi Yar and the connected Syretzky concentration camp in the Kiev suburb of Syretz.
