Anatoly Kuznetsov (1929-1979) was a Soviet writer best known for Babi Yar, a documentary novel that described his experiences as a child in German-occupied Kiev, Ukraine and his observations of the massacres that took place nearby. As an adult, chafing under Soviet censorship, Kuznetsov defected from the Soviet Union and continued to publish under the pseudonym A. Anatoli.
