Last Russian Troop Holdouts Around Kiev Surrender

Babi Yar, 1941

Timeline of History

Jewish History
Political History

The last Russian troops in and around Kiev surrender, leading to the full control of the city by German troops. Of the approximately 160,000 Jews who lived there before the war, over 100,000 have managed to flee already.

Adolf Hitler will call the Battle of Kiev the greatest battle in history — over 450,000 Soviet soldiers were lost when Kiev was encircled, the single largest concentration of Soviet troops on the Easter Front. Four Soviet field armies consisting of 43 divisions simply ceased to exist.

The Soviet army will liberate Kiev in 1943 when they finally outnumber German forces.
