Riga Ghetto and Holocaust Museum was opened on September 21, 2010. The main aim of the museum is to preserve memories about the Jewish community in Latvia and the Holocaust tragedy during the Second World War.
The Museum is located in the historical part of Riga - Spīķeri, not far from the former ghetto borders.
Originated from a small fishermen village, for centuries Riga has been an important part of the trade chain between Russia and Western Europe. A lively crossroad of cultures and backgrounds for over 800 years, the historical centre of Riga has accumulated an impressive cultural baggage and today is justly included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
