In the beginning of the World War II Latvia had lost state independence, the occupation authority has been changed tree times – at the beginning Soviet, then German, then again Soviet occupation regime. Latvians had been compelled to fight on the both sides – among Hitler Germany solders as well as among Soviet Red army troopers.
