During the Second World War many tragic events took place in occupied Latvia, impacting and affecting all its residents  – not one but two ruthless occupations, the Holocaust, illegal conscription of able bodied men into foreign armies, mass deportations of the civilian population – and going through all this, Latvia lost one-third of its population. One of those tragic chapters of history is also related to the so-called Latvian Legion, a military unit that was created illegally. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Latvia has compiled a thorough informative material, explaining these tragic pages in Latvian history. Find it here.
