Memento of the Month of May


Photos from 15 May 1938, of Saldus Gymnasium students who are about to participate in a procession. Two youths who are visible here – Imants Lagzdiņš and Imants Pētersons – later joined the anti-Soviet organization KOLA. They were arrested on 12 April 1941 together with 14 other members of KOLA. Both were sentenced to death.
