An exhibition Medical Personnel During Latvia's Independence Wars

The Pauls Stradiņš Museum of the History of Medicine is proud to announce the opening, on November 7, 2019, of a new exhibition to focus on the work of doctors and other medical personnel during Latvia's liberation battles.  World War I ended on November 11, 1918, with Germany's capitulation.  On November 18, Latvia's independence was proclaimed at the 2nd Riga City Theatre (today the Latvian National Theatre).  On November 22, the Red Army crossed Latvia's border at Zilupe and thus launched an independence war that continued until August 11, 1920, when Latvia and Soviet Russia signed a peace treaty.
