The Riga Ghetto Street View Tour

The Riga Ghetto and Holocaust in Latvia Museum has created a harrowing virtual tour of the Riga Ghetto using Google Maps Street View. This guided narrated tour allows you to explore the modern day streets of Riga while learning about life in the Riga ghetto under Nazi rule.

The Walk Among Memories tour is narrated by Holocaust survivor Yakob Basner and includes survivor testimonies provided by the USC Shoah Foundation. You can navigate through the tour by using the arrows on the Street View images, alternatively you can use the inset map, the 'next' button or the links in the map side-panel to jump to locations in the tour.
