Holocaust Memorial

Monument in Rīga

Don’t miss the moving Holocaust Memorial, sitting a block behind Akadēmijas laukums in a quiet garden. A large synagogue occupied this street corner until it was burned to the ground during WWII, tragically with the entire congregation trapped inside. No one survived. Today the concrete monument standing in its place is dedicated to the brave Latvians who risked their lives to help hide Jews during the war.
