Drobytsky Yar

Archive of P. Sokolsky

The main content of the archive consists of various documents and evidence, which formed the basis of the martyrology of Drobytsky Yar. These are memories of a few who managed to avoid death, who knew and remembered the dead - their neighbors, colleagues, and relatives. More than 500 people provided information about the victims of Drobytsky Yar, and are all listed on the website. When examining the archive of P. Sokolsky, new names of victims were established: more than 280 people were previously absent from the martyrology. References for all the victims in the martyrology of Drobytsky Yar mentioned in the archive are now linked to the “Archive of Sokolsky P.”

Davydov's family archive

This is a vast collection of photographs, documents, and newspaper and magazine clippings composed on the issues that in any way associate with the tragedy of the Drobitsky Yar; linked to the initiation of the project, to fundraising, to preparation and construction of the memorial complex. Materials collected in the archive are literary works and artistic creations dedicated to the Drobitsky Yar, polemical notes and eyewitness accounts with specific names. Now, victims identified in our website’s martyrology are also cross-referenced with the “Davydov’s Archives”.

Commemoration and Gratitude

Litovsky Dmitry Froimovich
January 24, 1959 - February 5, 2014

Litovsky Dmitry Froimovich, the director of the Memorial Park Drobytsky Yar, died.

Unexpectedly early, this honest, intelligent man, a wonderful leader and organizer, left us.

His openness, kindness, great sense of humor, attention to other people's problems, won him the love and respect of others, friends and colleagues.

Sense of responsibility for the commemorating the past drove him to new ideas in improving the memorial complex.

Thanks to the projects, led and implemented by Dmitry Froimovich, the status and significance of the memorial "Drobytsky Yar" increased, both in Ukraine and abroad.

It is difficult to reconcile with the fact that he is no longer with us.

Vivid memory of Litovsky Dmitry Froimoviche remains forever in our hearts!

Davydov Felix Savelievich
March 22, 1948 - January 3, 2014
