Pictures and text by Mark R. Hatlie
These pictures were taken in Riga during the first week of September, 2007. This memorial is one of the most well-liked in the city. There are often flowers lying in front of it. During the week I was in Riga, it was being renovated, so the context shows an ugly fence being set up around the memorial.
His gravesite is also an impressive memorial.
|The memorial is located on the Esplanade.|
|Nearby, children can rent little electric cars.|
The visit to this location was paid for by a research grant from the American Public University System. "Educating those who serve."
