Presentation of the book "SHALOM, SIBERIA!"
The Siberian Children Foundation and museum “Jews in Latvia” with the support of the Uniting History Foundation invites to Dzintra Geka's book "SHALOM, SIBERIA!" presentation that will take place at September 15, 18:00, in the Riga Jewish community.
Among the residents of Latvia deported on June 14, 1941, there were also 1,789 Jews. There were many children and teenagers among them, the youngest of whom was 2 months old. In many families, children were born in Siberia, in an eternal - as it seemed at the time - exile. Dz. Geka’s book contains dozens of interviews that have been collected mainly in Israel over many years. We will also hear excerpts from these stories at the event.
Admission to the event is free.
Photographs and videos will be taken during the event.
All COVID-19 prevention measures will be followed during the event.
