Walls don’t talk - but people do. Žanis Lipke Memorial will host the exhibition "Underground Riga" (“Pagrīdes Rīga”) about hiding places around Riga in the 20th century, as well as the chance to join excursions around these hiding places, guided by historian Gustava Strenga. The virtual map is available on the website of the memorial.
