  The Occupation Museum of Latvia
by call_me_rhia

The Occupation Museum of Latvia was established in 1993 and it is located in a black building with no apparent windows... Its aim is to inform people about the occupation of Latvia from 1940 to 1991, Nazi and Soviet. It's a museum "celebrating" Latvia's dark days of oppression and persecution.

The permanent exhibition tells you all about the first Soviet occupation (1940-1941), then about the Nazi occupation period (1941-1944/45), and then again the second Soviet occupation (1944/45-1991). There is also a section dedicated to the country's struggle for independence.
