Uniting History Foundation

The Uniting History Foundation supports non-profit organisations in Latvia which work to promote knowledge of Latvian history and multicultural dialogue. The Foundation works closely with museums, authors, and theatres on various initiatives open to the public.

The Uniting History Foundation works in close cooperation with charitable organisations that provide assistance to and enhance the social well-being of elderly and socially vulnerable groups.

Uniting History Project in Liepaja

The Uniting History Project in Liepaja is a long-term, non-profit cultural initiative which aims to commemorate the events and victims of the 1940s. The project focuses on life in Liepaja’s multicultural, pre-war society, and on the personal stories of the victims of the Holocaust and Soviet deportation. We believe that knowledge and an increased appreciation of Liepaja’s lost multicultural past will serve as a common ground for building a stronger city in the present. The project hopes to build a tolerant society through promoting awareness and interaction. The Uniting History Project will hold an annual series of community and place-based educational and cultural events, highlighting the importance of knowing and sharing history in order to create a better future.

Vision

The creation of a rich and diverse community of respect and acceptance in the future through the cultivation of an awareness of the past, the support of education, and the provision of relief to those in need in the present.

Mission

Research, preserve, and make accessible the history of pre-war Latvia and the events of the 1940s - with a particular focus on Liepaja —through a series of public events involving local and international artists, researchers, organisations, and communities at large. More broadly, to promote intercultural dialogue in Latvia and provide help to those in need.
