Holocaust memorial desecrated by arsonists in Ukraine

Antisemitic vandals targeted the menorah at Babyn Yar, the site the Nazis murdered over 33,000 in 1941 Jews. This is the sixth such attack on the site, taking place on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.

Tyres were placed around the monument, doused with an inflammable substance and set alight. The flames were noticed and put out by the guard watching over the Ukrainian Orthodox Church nearby.
