On September 15, from 6 pm to 7:30 pm, the book “Shalom Siberia!” presentation and meeting with the author Dzintra Geka-Vaska took place. The book contains 26 interviews in Latvian, Russian and English with Jewish people who were deported to Siberia from Latvia as children. More than 70 people had gathered. Elīna Sklar, Executive Director of the Uniting History Foundation, spoke, and the book’s characters, Rafails Roznetāls and Jakovs Šacs, shared their memories of the deportation to Siberia. Cellist Max Vilensky played an excerpt from Dan Jaffe’s sonata “Shoah”. The children of the Jewish school read excerpts from the book, and each student received a copy of the book as a gift.
