 12.12.2011. New virtual exhibition „From Duke Gotthard till Duke James”
This virtual exhibition is a web version of the traveling exhibition „From Duke Gotthard till Duke James” which opened for first time in the Latvian State Historical Archives in Riga on December 16, 2011.

The documents displayed in the exhibition demonstrate, on the one hand, the rich and diverse collections of documents held by the Latvian State Historical Archives (Latvijas Valsts vēstures Arhīvs, LVVA), and on the other hand give an insight into the most important historical events in the Duchy of Courland, revealing that much of what is regarded as having been introduced by Duke James actually existed in Courland even before he acceded to the throne. The most important collections of the LVVA utilised in the exhibition are: the Archive of the Dukes of Courland (Collection 554), the Archive of the Courland Nobility (Collection 640), the Archives of the Noble Families (Collection 1100), the Collection of the Courland Society for Literature and Art (Collection 5759) and the Parchment Collection (Collection 5561). Documents of the Duchy of Courland are also kept in several other collections of the archives. The exhibition is augmented with visual material: maps, plans, portraits and other images from the collections of the LVVA and Rundāle Palace Museum, as well as internet resources and material from the personal collections of the creators of the exhibition.
 01.11.2009. New virtual exhibition „The Aftermath of Prague Spring and Charter 77 in Latvia/the Baltics”
This virtual exhibition is the web version of the traveling exhibition „The Aftermath of Prague Spring and Charter 77 in Latvia/the Baltics ” which opened for first time in Prague during the international conference "Prague Spring 1968. Society, the Mass Media, and the Transfer of Political and Cultural Processes" on June 16-17, 2008.
The exhibition deals with the aftermath of events in 1968 in Czechoslovakia, in Latvia, and in the Baltics uncovering little known facts about the protests of the Latvian people against the invasion of Czechoslovakia by USSR Troops.
In November 2009 the traveling exhibition „The Aftermath of Prague Spring and Charter 77 in Latvia/the Baltics ” will be displayed at the National Museum in Prague.
 14.06.2007.   Virtual exhibition "The First Mass Deportation of Latvian Citizens, June 14, 1941." is available also in English

The theme of repressions does not belong solely to Latvian history, but to European history in general. It is therefore important that European society understand this history and the consequences of the repressions, which can still be felt in present-day Latvia.

Thanks to the financial support of the European Commission, this virtual exhibit is available also in English. We hope that we have thus taken a small step in the direction of adding to the knowledge of our common European history and increasing understanding and closeness between nations.
