Eastern Europe - July 2004

In July 2004 Hilda and I travelled to Latvia, Lithuania and Russia to pay our respects at the places where Hilda's grandparents and other family lived and were killed in the Holocaust.

Over a two week period we visited Riga, Daugavpils, Vilnius, Panevezys, and Kupiskis and St. Petersburg.

The heart and soul of the journey was the erection of a Wall of Memory in Kupiskis to memorialize the 800 Jews who were killed there by Germans and their Lithuanian allies. Our gratitude goes to Norman Meyer and his family who were the driving force behind the monument and the group tour.

Norman Meyer passed away on December 10, 2004 -- he will always be remembered.

The complete story of the trip is posted at A DVD documenting the day in Kupiskis is available at Brandeis University.
