RIGA -- Latvia's capital city has opened a new museum dedicated to the Jewish Ghetto that was built in Riga during the Nazi occupation of the country.

The museum is located within the area that was part of the Ghetto during WWII.

“If we don’t know history, we can’t shape the future. We must honor those who suffered and died. We can’t forget the burden that the Jewish people had to bear during WWII,” said Riga city vice-mayor Ainars Slesers at the museum's opening event.
