    1. Why would Jews go to Kiev? Kiev is the site of Babi Yar, where over 100,000 Jews were slaughtered in a ravine. Jews are not welcome there today. I know of a group which went to see Babi Yar, and the local population was not hospitable to them. They looked at them as if to say “Who sent for your kind”.

    2. To #3- I wrote the article in #1. I don’t know #2. It is obvious that whomever wrote #2, is not me, because the English grammar which was used, is not my style. I believe that #2 was trying to point out that Jews may not have a good historical grasp of the participation of the Ukraine in the genocide against the Jews. The citizens of the Ukraine were savage beasts, when it came to killing Jews.
