Special to the Jewish News

I n Russian, it is called "a holiday
with tears on the eyes."
On Nov. 6, more than 250
people commemorated the 60th
anniversary of the liberation of Kiev at
a ceremony at Teitel Jewish Apart-
,
ments in Oak Park.
The liberation of Kiev in 1943
marked the end of the tragedy begun
two years earlier with the German
occupation and the slaughter of
80,000 Jews at nearby Babi-Yar. For
many participants in the program,
the victims were their relatives,
friends and neighbors. They came to
pay tribute to the soldiers and offi-
cers who had given their lives for the
liberation of their native city.
Two dozen people, including
singers, writers and poets, spoke
from the podium — in Russian,

Russian Roots

Ukrainian, Byelorussian, Yiddish,
Hebrew and English. Among the
speakers was Naum Levin, a Red
Army veteran who fought to liberate
Kiev. Manya Landman, a Teitel resi-
dent, spoke in Yiddish.
Raya Danishevskaya, another
Teitel resident, told how she escaped
the shootings at Babi-Yar when her
mother convinced a Ukrainian
neighbor woman to hide the 13-
year-old.
In perhaps the most emotional
moment, Haim Rozental, once a
death-camp inmate, read in Hebrew
and Yiddish a prayer in memory of
those who were victims of the
Holocaust. The prayer was followed
by a moment of silence.
Zhenya Shusterman and Anna
Basova were chief organizers of the
program, assisted by Teitel adminis-
trator Wendy Watson and board of
residents head Malka Sklyarskaya.
