Rīga Ghetto & Latvian Holocaust Museum

Museum in Rīga

The centrepiece of this rather modest museum is a wooden house with a reconstructed flat, like those that Jews had to move into when the Nazis established a ghetto in this area of Rīga in 1941. Models of synagogues that used to stand in all major Latvian towns are exhibited in the ground floor of the house. Outside, there is a photographic exhibition detailing the Holocaust in Latvia.
