Yellow Star of Babi Yar is a cross of Holocaust remembrance and atonement. A humble tribute to lives lost during one particular massacre of Jews in World War II (Nazi massacre of the Jewish population of Kyiv), it is quiet in its austerity, the slightly créped face of the girl suggests the wrinkles of erasure from time.

EXERPT FROM POEM BY YEVGENY YEVTUSHENKO (1932-2017):
...How little one can see, or even sense!
Leaves are forbidden, so is sky,
But much is still allowed – very gently
In darkened rooms each other to embrace.
-“No, fear not – those are sounds
Of spring itself. She’s coming soon.
Quickly, your lips!”
-“They break the door!”
-“No, river ice is breaking…”
Wild grasses rustle over Babi Yar,
The trees look sternly, as if passing judgement.
Here, silently, all screams, and, hat in hand,
I feel my hair changing shade to gray.
And I myself, like one long soundless scream
Above the thousands of thousands interred,
I’m every old man executed here,
As I am every child murdered...
