Refugees, migration and political exile
In cooperation with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, three documentary films on the issues of migration and escape in Latvia were produced for Latvian television. All three films were broadcasted in autumn 2016 on LTV. The short films are based on interviews with contemporary witnesses, who had to flee from Latvia during or after the Second World War and portray current refugees who have arrived in Latvia recently.
