Event description

75 years ago, on November 30 and December 8, 1941, a total 26,000 people were murdered in the outskirts of Rīga. Of these 25,000 were Latvian citizens and about 1,000 were brought in from the Third Reich. The largest mass murder in the history of Latvia was organized and planned by Friedrich Jeckeln, a high-ranking SS officer acting under orders from Berlin. The people of the Rīga Ghetto were chased from their homes and force-marced to the Rumbula forest by Latvian and German SD units, including the infamous Arajs Kommando squad. Latvian auxiliary police kept watch over the marchers. Those who tried to hide or resist - or were simply walking too slow - were shot either in the Ghetto or on the way to Rumbula. In the forest the victims were stripped of their personal belongings and were told to remove their clothes and lie down in the previously dug mass graves. Afterwards the people lying on the graves of their relatives and peers were shot by the German SD and members of the Einsatzgruppe. A week later on December 8 Latvian and German SD units continued to look for and kill Jews that had been able to hide within the bounds of the Ghetto.

The second event took place on the 8th of December. 25 thousand of people were killed in this small place. There are not only the Riga Jews. Mostly old men, women, children.
