“Still under construction?”

Riga Ghetto and Latvian Holocaust Museum

Seems like this is still being developed, but a very moving exhibition on the 'year of horror' (1942). Made even more sense retrospectively for me when we went to the Museum of the Occupation.

The Museum is limitde to a collection of displayed fotos and eyewitness accounts of the round -up of the Jewish people and the atrocities/massacres in woods and fields. The few Latvians who made the special effort to aid their Jewish friends are honored and remembered as well in this small museum that is a part of the Jewish Cultural Center.

The Museum depicts a very sad period of Latvian history. The exhibit is mostly photos and graphs, with some videos.

This is an excellent presentation with lots of photos and some recreactons of those terrible years. The guided tours are very good.

Don't miss this place but it is rather a sobering experience wandering around... Dress appropriately and remain quiet
