Australia Nadia Bartel deleted from Melbourne Cup website after white-powder vid
A Massacre in a Park, a Miracle Survivor, and a Stash of Hidden Letters
KYIV—Barely anyone made it out of Babyn Yar alive. Out of the estimated 33, 771 local Jews taken to this park to be shot and discarded, maybe a handful survived. One of those was Nadia Elgart, and her survival was considered so remarkable that it was recorded on her gravestone in 1978: “Nadia Elgart, the woman who escaped from Babyn Yar on September 29, 1941 with her 6-year-old son.” Babyn Yar is the Russian name imposed during Soviet times on the local park which the Nazis, who invaded Ukraine in June, 1941, turned into the site of an urban massacre.

In Sydney, there was plenty of buzz surrounding the Golden Eagle, where up to 10,000 double-vaccinated spectators flocked to Rosehill Gardens in Sydney's west.

Nadia Bartel wrestles with her hair extensions in Melbourne
It was recently revealed that Nadia Bartel was replaced as an ambassador for the Melbourne Cup. And on Saturday, the former AFL WAG, 36, was spotted palming off her blonde hair extensions to her mother outside her $3.15 million Melbourne CBD home.While it's unclear if Nadia was loaning or returning the long blonde strands of tresses, the socialite had no use for it after it was revealed that she wasn't invited to the cup celebrations this year.Dressed in a matching grey jumper and leggings, Nadia was far from the glamorous appearance she would have made had she been invited to the prestigious event.
Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, she announced she will be highlighting the 'initiatives and programs designed to keep the horses safe during and after racing'.
Nadia has had a spectacular fall from grace since she was busted snorting white powder at an illegal party during's lockdown on September 2.
She and three other women were each fined $5,452 after footage from the party was accidentally posted on Instagram by her friend and business partner Ellie Pearson.
But the most humiliating part of the scandal was seeing Nadia, once known for her impeccably clean-cut image, snorting the white substance off a $1.50 Kmart plate.

She wasn't charged with drug offences, however, because Victoria Police couldn't prove what she was snorting.
As the Melbourne Cup Carnival prepares to kick off in a matter of days, speculation is growing that Nadia - who was once a regular attendee at the races - could use the event at Flemington Racecourse to mount her comeback to the social scene.
The Henne founder, who last year described the Cup as 'the highlight of my year', has been a fixture of the Birdcage enclosure for the past decade.
Year after year, Nadia and fellow WAGs Bec Judd and Kylie Brown have partied in the premium marquee where only celebrities and VIPs are allowed access.
The mother of two also had a high-profile role at the races last year, with the VRC announcing her as Melbourne Cup Carnival Ambassador in 2020.
