Remembrance Day

Aleksey Scherback (translated by Rory Mullarkey)
 
You can’t tell which ones are still fascists and which ones aren’t, since they’re all dressed up in the same uniform.

Can you be a hero if you fought for Nazi Germany?

The Latvians who fought for the Third Reich and halted the Red Army parade as heroes every year through the streets of Riga. As a growing number of young Russians campaign to halt the ‘fascist’ march, their Latvian counterparts join the veterans in commemoration.

When teenager Anya becomes a political activist, her father’s attempts to calm the situation stirs up a storm of extremist patriotism.

Remembrance Day takes an unflinching look at the fight for the political soul of Latvia.
