Latvia marked the 60th anniversary of mass killings of thousands of Latvian Jews. Only about 1,500 Latvian Jews out of 75,000 survived after the Nazis invaded Latvia in 1941. President Vaira Vike- Freiberga urged her country last Friday to study and understand the events of the Holocaust, a subject that was not discussed during the 50-year Soviet occupation that followed World War II.
