Babi Yar (?). Visitors to mass graves. The ground is covered with a light dusting of snow. Exhumation of bodies. Pan down ravine. Wide angle shot of bodies in a ditch, CU of a skull, propped on top of clothing, the skull still has hair, menacing placement of the skull staring at the camera.

Translation of Ukrainian narration:
[Abrupt] ...in Babi Yars all over Ukraine: in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Kerch, Lviv. Criminals were forced to look at what they had done.

[A woman's voice behind the camera. Abrupt.] "The only thing I want to say: all this horror that happened..."
