Cemetery Murdered German Jews Riga-Bikernieki-Forest

Between 1941 en 1954, 25,000 German Jews were deported to Riga and killed in Bikernieki Forest. They were buried in mass graves in the middle of the forest. After the war these mass graves were found back and they are now marked with a remembrance column. There is also a central memorial.
