Event description

In the Riga ghetto Museum a new exhibit appeared today. This is a rail car sample of 40-ies of the last century. In exactly the same cars Jews from all over Europe were brought to the Riga ghetto to be exterminated. The names of European cities, people were sent to death are shown on the car. Only during the Second world war about 75 thousand local Jews and about 25 thousand European were killed in Riga. The tragedy of the Riga ghetto is recognized by the international community as the most severe genocide against a particular nationality.

02:05 - 02:49 (Ru) It's been a few days after the feast of the Passover, the feast of the Exodus from Egypt. We're talking about freedom, about memory. But it is impossible in this day to forget about those who died. This car symbolizes the memory of those Jews from Western Europe, Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, who were brought here to be killed. They died physically, but their souls could not die, they live. In memory of these souls this car was installed here. This car was made only for one purpose – to remember the tragedy and that it never repeats.
