Memorial (and graves?) of men killed in January, 1991 in Riga

Pictures and text by Mark R. Hatlie

These pictures were taken in Riga during the first week of September, 2007. They show a memorial in the Meza kapi (Forest Cemetery) in Riga. Presumably, the three men are also buried here. The first pictures show the grave of Gvido Zvaigzne at his family plot. The others show where three of the other men are buried.

There is a memorial to the events and the men who died in town and markers where the men died near Basteikalns.


The visit to this location was paid for by a research grant from the
American Public University System.
