Overview

For five decades after WWII, Latvis lay forgotten behind the "Iron Curtain". The lives and struggles of its people were thoroughly hidden from the world outside the Soviet Union. This collection of short stories presents an unvarnished portrait of life in Latvis during those times; times when a proud and productive people were subjected to the brutal whims of an oppressive and savage regime; a regime that actively sought to annihilate a people, its traditions, its values, its ancient culture. Blumberga's stories offer a cinematic account of these times; as if shot through a sharp Latvian lens.
