Using material from German, Russian, and Ukrainian archives, the film reconstructs the massacre near Kyiv in which 33,711 Jewish men, women, and children were murdered by a German Sonderkommando and the Ukrainian auxiliary police on September 29 and 30, 1941. »What is also frightening about the film is that similar images are emerging again today. The images of dead soldiers’ bodies resemble those from the Russian war in Ukraine« [Berliner Zeitung].
