Riga Ghetto and Latvian Holocaust Museum

Riga Ghetto Museum is located in the historic area bordering the former ghetto. More than 70,000 names of Holocaust victims and a photo exhibition, focusing on anti-Semitic propaganda, the Holocaust in Latvia, the resistance movement and those who provided safe haven, are set on a piece of land, covered by cobblestone taken from the streets of the former ghetto.

Located in the historical part of the city near the borders of former ghetto. The Riga ghetto territory itself is almost unique in Europe in terms of the absence of any significant architectural changes within past 60 years.
