About 7100 Jews lived in Liepaja in June of 1941. Approximately 200 survived the Nazi occupation of Latvia along with about 300 who survived in the USSR.
The murder of nearly 3,000 Liepaja Jews at nearby Skede, on the Baltic Sea, occurred on December 15 - 17, 1941. These killings by the Einsatzgruppen (mobile killing units) and of their Latvian collaborators are documented in an extraordinary and heartbreaking photographic record.
