In time for Holocaust Memorial Day on Thursday, a haunting new music video was released on Tuesday putting a soulful tune to the backdrop of Babi Yar, the site of one of the most horrific Nazi atrocities in the Holocaust.

Babi Yar is a ravine in the Ukrainian capital city of Kiev where the Nazis conducted massacres, the most notorious of which took place on September 29-30, 1941, when 33,771 Jews were murdered.

The massacre of Kiev's Jewish community was the largest mass killing by the genocidal Nazi regime during its campaign against the Soviet Union, and is considered to be the largest single massacre in the history of the Holocaust.

A total of between 100,000 and 150,000 people were murdered at Babi Yar throughout the course of the German occupation.

The new music video, produced by Daniel Finkelman, features a haunting melody composed by Cecelia Margules that poignantly captures the tragic site.
