There is a fairly detailed photograph of the ditch at Babi Yar filled with bodies. It is from: _Nazi Crimes in the Ukraine_ edited by V.N. Nenisov and G.I. Changiuli (Doctors of Law) c. 1987, Academy of Sciences of the Ukrainian SSR Institute of State and Law Naukova Gumka Publishers, Kiev The photograph shows a group of about 15 people in civilian and military garb standing on the edge of a long trench perhaps fifty feet or more in length. Lying in the trench are a great many bodies side-to-side and on top of numerous other bodies. It is difficult to tell if the bodies are clothed or not but it is probable that they have some clothes on. In the far background is what might be an identifiable landmark. It appears to be a large bridge over a ravine, or part of a very large building. The text that accompanies the photograph reads: "The excavation of a grave in Babi Yar in Kiev where thousands of Soviet citizens had been shot by the Hitlerites, Kiev, 1944." The photo is identified as being No. 2-46031 from the Central State Archive of the Cine and Photodocuments of the Ukranian SSR.
