On June 14, 1941, more than 15,000 Latvian inhabitants, including approximately 4,000 children of Latvian, Jewish, Polish and Russian extraction were deported to Siberia. The women and children were sent to the remote Krasnojarska and Tomska districts. The first two years were the most difficult and many perished from the harsh conditions.
Today some 400 deported children still live in Latvia and Siberia. This documentary describes the fate of these children.Details:
