The Museum was established in Rīga in 1993 by the Occupation Museum Association (before 2006 - Foundation) to:

  • provide information about Latvia and its people under two occupying totalitarian regimes from 1940 to 1991;

  • remind the world of the wrongdoings committed by
    foreign powers against the state and the people of Latvia;

  • remember those who perished, who suffered, and who fled the terror of the occupying regimes.
