LONDON—A book documenting
crimes against the Jews and others
during the Nazi occupation of the
Soviet Latvian Republic in World
War II, has been published here.
Edited by A. Kadukas, a Russian,
it drew its material from official
Soviet sources such as govern-
mental archives and historical in-
stitute. The title is "We Accuse."
The book documents, in text
and photographs, the destruction
of Jewish communities in Latvia
during the period 1941-45 in which
many Latvians were willing colla-
borators of the Germans and were
responsible for some of the worst
atrocities. Latvians who refused
to collaborate were also imprison-
ed and killed. Before World War
II the Jewish community in Latvia
numbered 150,000 persons. It is
virtually non-existent today.
