From Locker of Memory

BACKGROUND

This list was taken from Karen Frostig’s “Locker of Memory” website at https://www.lockerofmemory.com/ The site is a living memorial to the victims and survivors at the Jungfernhof concentration camp in Riga, Latvia.  The following is from her introduction to the site but if you are interested in this camp and its history, it is strongly recommended that you visit the site for additional information.

“The Locker of Memory memorial to the victims of the Jungfernhof concentration camp is an international, multimedia memorial project situated along the Daugava River at the Jungfernhof concentration camp site (also referred to as MazjumpravmuiĹža). Located on the outskirts of Riga, the camp was housed at the Mazjumprava Manor, an abandoned, dilapidated farming estate situated on 500 acres of land. Roughly hewn barracks were installed in a few unheatable barns and cattle sheds with gaping holes to accommodate close to 4,000 prisoners. Today, the site has been converted into a public park, designated for leisure and relaxation.”
