Babi Yar Park
Founded in 1971, Babi Yar Park is a living memorial to the thousands of Jews, gypsies, Ukrainians and others who were murdered between 1941 and 1943 at the Babi Yar ravine on the outskirts of Kiev. The connection between Babi Yar and Denver began in 1969 when the late Mayor William H. McNichols, Jr., designated 27 acres of park land at the corner of Yale and Havana as Babi Yar Park, at the request of The Committee of Concern for Soviet Jewry. The purpose of the park was to create “a place and an act that would demonstrate a unified public protest.”
