Over the next few months I intend to post some old photos that my father Janis CIRKSIS kept in various albums. I'll post a couple of photos here with some quick descriptions so you have some idea of what is to come.
As I post photos, it is my intention to research them as much as possible. If you can add any information about anything I post please feel free to comment below.
|The front gate of the DP camp Janis CIRKSIS stayed at after WWII. I have about a dozen photos of Latvian life in the DP camps. I will post them once I have done some research on this camp.|
Well, that's all I have time for now. I will continue to digitise letters and photographs from Janis's collection but in the mean time, if you would like to help me translate some of these letters please let me know! There are a LOT of them, they are all hand written and unfortunately, I don't speak or read latvian so without help this will be a very slow process indeed! And as always, if you have something to add, post a comment below!
