The Jewish community lives on the territory of the city for many centuries, building it together with Ukrainians and representatives of other ethnic groups of the city.
During the Second World War, the Nazis attempted total destruction of Jews in our city, as well as in the whole of occupied Europe. A small number of Jews found the opportunity to evacuate their families. Most of them stayed in the city. Their destiny was determined.
With the beginning of the occupation of the Bila Tserkva mass shooting of Jews began. The shootings took place in several places. These were terrible events in which thousands of women, men, elderly people and children were innocently killed.
One of the mass shootings is striking by its roughness. We are talking about ninety children aged from a few months to nine who were kept for several days without food, water, care, and then were shot. This tragedy occurred in August 1941. The terrible episode was included in all the directories on the history of the Holocaust. He is known throughout the world as one of the first mass shootings of Jewish children in Ukraine.
