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 where Jews had to move into when in 1941 the Nazis established a ghetto in this area of Rīga. 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.
