This film by Boris Maftsir is part of the director’s documentary megaproject, Searching for the Unknown Holocaust, in which he traces the genocide of Jews at the hands of the Nazis and their collaborators in the countries that comprised the former USSR.
This film finds Maftsir returning to his native Riga where he embarks on a deep dive into the Latvian Jewry’s Holocaust. Unlocked in a Rigan archive, the director’s private drawers reveal the story of his own family – and the collective tale of Latvia’s Jewish population. It is a journey into Latvia’s past, as well as an attempt at understanding how it continues to impact the country to this day.
