Museum of the Occupation of Latvia is a state-accredited private museum, which reports the occupation history of the Latvian State (1940-1991): the first occupation by Soviet powers (1940-1941), the German national-socialist occupation (1941-1944/45) and the second occupation by the Soviets (1944/45–1991).

 

Museum of the Occupation of Latvia is a state-accredited private museum, which reports the occupation history of the Latvian State (1940-1991): the first occupation by Soviet powers (1940-1941), the German national-socialist occupation (1941-1944/45) and the second occupation by the Soviets (1944/45–1991). The museum’s permanent building, located on 1 Latvian Riflemen Square, is under reconstruction and expansion, so the museum has found a temporary home on the former premises of the US embassy, 7 Raiņa Boulevard, where a temporary exhibition display has been arranged.

 

As they enter the exhibit, visitors can watch a short introductory film in four languages: Latvian, English, German and Russian. The vast historical context of occupation is presented through documents of the era, including the treacherous Hitler-Stalin pact, photographs, maps, posters and artefacts. The fates of individual people are illuminated through materials stored in the museum’s collection: video testimonies, diaries, letters, personal documents, numerous memorabilia and art. Every year foreign dignitaries, media representatives, researchers and thousands of tourists, students and pupils visit the museum and learn about the history of Latvia’s occupation, which was kept secret for many years.
