The Latvian Tragedy
A little-known chapter in history is brought to life through heartbreaking photographs and documents that show how Latvians suffered at the hands of Soviet and German invaders in 1940–1941. Latvians were deported, imprisoned, and executed, and the fate of the country’s Jews, Roma, the mentally challenged, and suspected Communist sympathizers was worse.
