Testimony by Survivors Read More About It
The Holocaust in Latvia is documented in books by survivors that are listed throughout the pages of the Holocaust section of this site (see menu at the left). Many more testimonies are contained in interviews recorded on audio and videotape and found in libraries and archives, in their original medium and/or transcribed form.
Some may be located by searching library catalogs, often possible via the web. Several collections, and search results for Latvia, are listed below. Please be aware that catalog search results are no guarantee of the amount of testimony that is about Latvia; search results only indicate that a more detailed review should be conducted.
The accessibility of this material
varies. Some is available on the web, some through inter-library loan
and some at the institution itself.
