Thank you for sharing this. Hashem yakum damam.

I actually spent a month in the Ukraine over fifteen years ago on a mini-shlichut. The whole country is one big Jewish graveyard. Every town and village has a pit where they murdered all local Jews. It may have changed since then, but at the time, at Babi Yar, the site of the most atrocious mass murder (about 33,000 Jews within a few days), the memorial sign just said that Soviet citizens victims of the Nazis had been murdered. No mention of Jews whatsoever.

I'll just add that the Ukraine of 2001 was just as antisemitc as ever. In just a few weeks, I experienced more antisemitic violence than I had in my whole life. And the local Jews related the endemic antisemitism they endured on a constant basis.

If only the remaining Jews there, many of who are sole survivors from their communities, could be brought to Israel.

From a recent ADL global antisemitism poll:

http://global100.adl.org/#country/ukraine

38% of the general population hold antisemitic views, but the older they are the more antisemtic they are: 44% of over 50s are antisemitic, and men more antisemitic than women.
