The Riga City Council unanimously supported further development of the Riga Ghetto Museum
Nov 13, 2020 —
On Thursday, November 12, the Riga City Council unanimously adopted a decision to re-transfer the municipal property in the area between Moscow Street, Turgeneva Street and General Radzina Krastmala for free usage of the charity organization - the association “Shamir”. This will ensure support for activities of the association, including contributing to the preservation of the commemorations of victims of the Holocaust tragedy, as well as the further development of the Riga Ghetto and the Latvian Holocaust Museum.
We are very grateful to all deputies of the Riga Council, to all the supporters and voters, to all friends and visitors, to all who have written, called, and expressed their emotional, informational, and even financial support to us and our activities! Thank you very much!
The question on the next 10 years of existence of the Riga Ghetto and Latvian Holocaust museum was firstly raised in May 2020. It was half of the year of work, worries, and hopes. Thanks to all and especially deputies, the question is finally solved!
