  • This is one of the most impressive places of the city. It is far too little noted. Who has been in this wooded area, must be touched by these countless mass graves. Have people can be as fanatical cruel? An important and depressing experience for all people of peace-drenched post-war generations.

  • As important as I feel it is to visit this memorial, I feel very uneasy seeing it referred to as an attraction. However, I do feel that you MUST find time to this memorial.  more »
  • This site convey many emotions by its sobriety, its location in the forest, the multiplication of the stones, serenity which emerges from the whole. Take time of to sit. Go preferably sunny day. There is little historical information on the spot, but the emotion prevails. Easy to access by bus. The site, though only in off the road, is not isolated, people flock or run = feels safe.

In General, there is rubble granite stones 5000, which is specific to the Jewish cemetery. The creation of the memorial site financially supported various organizations and the Government of Germany, Australian National Foundation and the Riga municipality. During the second world war in the Woods around Bikernieku 46.5 thousand people were killed and buried in mass graves.
