 REVENGE WILL NOT HAPPEN!

THE INVIOLABILITY OF PERSONS AND PROPERTY IS ENSURED!

In those few words hid the most terrible cynicism of the Bolsheviks. From the very beginning of the administration of the invaders information about the first arrests spread like a fire. Instead of recidivists, criminal offenders, Bolshevik agents, spies, illegals and the traitors released from imprisonment, the cells of the prisons were filled with
Latvian patriots. If Latvian security guards were arrested for the fact that when executing their official duties of maintaining order on streets subject to the spontaneous activities the Yids and a mob stirred up by them, then every other Latvian was put in prison just because he was wearing a soldier’s, Border Guard’s or National Guard uniform, that he was managing some Latvian government institution, that he litigated according to existing laws and at the least only for the fact that he clearly and bravely announced his belonging to the Latvian people. Yet at the same time, Bolsheviks dogma was announcing the equality and brotherhood of nationalities! 230

Worry and emotion increased within the people. Confused and deeply shattered from experiencing those events prepared so coldly and cynically, it stood at the brink of an unknown future feeling the nearness of danger. The invaders’ force fought the mistrust and hatred of the people. Revenge will not happen! It had to say that, and it must say so not as a power which wants to grow stronger and to create its authority, for which it is important to acquire the trust of the people, but by using existing and new, deliberately-instigated antagonisms in order to pursue its real purpose:

TO DESTROY «THE HARMFUL ELEMENT»

THIS ELEMENT WAS

ALL THE LATVIAN PEOPLE

Revenge will not happen! In those words were included the most outrageous lies of Bolsheviks, the most dreadful purposes, which were more terrible than any that could be found during entire year of their governing. Behind the trust and obedience which should have been established by those words hid the real purpose of the Bolsheviks – to destroy the Latvian people.

WHEN A YEAR LATER THE EARTH OPENED, THE TRUTH CAME TO LIGHT, AND IT WAS MORE TERRIBLE THAN ANYTHING ONE CAN GUESS OR IMAGINE

24 On the 26th International Bolshevik Youth day, Latvia was forced to perform again. Young people from the schools were driven on the streets by compulsion: the Bolsheviks needed to demonstrate to the world that the nation and especially young people understand and love the new time, that it «freely and without force is expressing its joy in the establishment of Soviet Authority». Forced demonstrations were the best way to create such a false effect. Streets were filled with propaganda mock-ups made in the Yiddish taste and color schemes (right), for the making which enormous sums of money were spent. And again, the ones who screamed the loudest, who expressed fervent joy, again were the Yids – the Chosen People, the only truly voluntary demonstrators (below).

240.jpg

«Working peasants’ land, cattle and inventory will not be touched!»

And even as new slogans and promises more and more loudly were thrown at the people, no one believed them any longer. No Latvian peasant believed that agriculture will be protected from Soviet circumstances. Their hands hung down because they saw their destiny. Therefore the Bolsheviks had to lie by force in order somehow to hide their purposes. the Minister of Agriculture was doing this fairly willingly.

25.jpg

Land division commission executing its activity.

The Latvian peasant learned to experience that he should not be disappointed in his foreboding: landless peasants were granted 10 hectares each at the cost of the former land owners. Commissions drove into the countryside and withdrew from their land, cattle and inventory as much as was decided to give to a new land owner – enough that his farm would not be able to survive. The result of this transition needed to be a collective farm. In such a manner a total of 10,140 farms were looted.

«For Marx’s – Engels’ – Lenin’s – Stalin’s ideal…»

Quickly, deliberately, purposefully and against a plan worked out by Moscow, the poison of Bolshevism was flooded even deeper into the body of the bound nation, even more and more directly endangering the real bearer of the life of the people and the proof of its strength- the spirit. Along with screaming propaganda which overwhelmed people in loud demonstrations, importunately and persistently clamoring from glaring posters and newspaper columns, the ideas of Bolshevism fed through very well thought out pathways were introduced also into schools, higher education institutions and reached even the Latvian University, by this manner subjecting to the dangerous power of those ideas all of the youth – the healthiest and most positive power of any people. The department of Marxism-Leninism – the new «science» not recognized anywhere in the world was founded. The Faculty of Theology faculty and the Department of Philosophy were closed, old and respected teachers were discharged or arrested and in their place new ones whose only education was certified by the diploma of «The Red Professorate Institute» were attracted. This institution prepared specially-trained men for the propagation of Bolshevistic ideas, who many times did not even know how to properly write, but their tenure was determined according to how long they had belonged to the Party and the years spent imprisoned …
Those men were chosen to be turned into the teachers and leaders of the Latvian young people…

Along with the changes mentioned the Union of Latvian Communist Youth was founded, the task of which was to Bolshevise Latvian young people. In order to do this job properly it was decided to damage young people from childhood which was tried to be achieved by involving them in the newly-founded Pioneers Organization.

The wave of absurdity, lies and abuse washed over factory workers and institutional employees also: work according to a schedule and plan was started – these were systems never to be fulfilled in life and completely useless; the Stachanoviesi Movement was invented – this was an artificially created fever for searching for the increase of labor productivity and technical innovations; a system for competition in labor productivity among enterprises and factories was founded – that was the most cruel falsification of the workers’ wishes and the means for exploitation where instead of the 8 hour workday established by the Bolsheviks themselves, oftentimes it made people work twice as long; the Shock Workers Movement was established – that terrible tool to suck out the working capability of laborers…

At the same time, taking care about the destruction of moral and physical strength, Bolshevik institutions started to ruin the basis for the material and economic life of the people: from depositors their savings in banks and saving accounts were taken away, in this way effecting the small, self-sacrificing plodder – saver, took away buildings, nationalized industry and transport, reached out their hands for the peasant’s land, the craftsman’s tools and city resident’s household possessions.

and all of this together was called «the struggle for a better future», «the struggle for the Marx’s – Engels’ – Lenin’s – Stalin’s ideal»…
The tentacles of Bolshevism were grasping deep inside the body of the people. There could be only one result – mental disability and stupidity, physical weakness and exhaustion- the true preconditions for the status of the slave to begin with and then for the status of an animal.

DEMONSTRATIONS!

DEMONSTRATIONS!

DEMONSTRATIONS!

That was the characteristic feature for the period of Bolshevik authority. With screamed slogans, Bolshevik marches, the tramp of thousand feet was necessary to express joy for the remembrance of this day when the proletariat dictatorship which promised heaven on earth was born.

In fact those marches, slogans and steps were needed to drown out the thunder of the collapsing human life spoiled by the Bolsheviks, to tread underfoot the lies of the Bolsheviks and screaming indictment for this day which brought hell into the world.

Announcements of job offers

In Winter all the country was surprised by a new manner of propagandizing:

281.jpg

Newspaper announcements were inviting people to the Employment Administration to apply for numerous vacancies or newly-created work positions. When the unemployed appeared at the Administration in long lines, it knew nothing about such requirements for helping hands.

EVERYBODY TO THE ELECTION!

29.jpg

Home propagandizing.

January 12, 1941 was coming – the day when Latvians once again were forced to do things against which their will revolted – the day of the election of deputies of the Supreme Council of the USSR.

In addition to the already existing types the Bolsheviks created one more new kind of propagandizing, the so-called «home propagandizing».

290

A scene in one of the election meetings for the Supreme Council elections

Their agents visited individual apartments, called into them all the people living in a building, to whom they then started to explain the meaning of the elections. It is not necessary to guess that the Yids were diligent visitors at those meetings.

And in places where such a manner of propagandizing was not possible it was replaced with meetings within factories and workplaces where frequently there appeared even only women and children.

30.jpg Elections, typically one of the Bolsheviks’ villainous ways for the falsification of the true will and feelings of the people, were arranged with extra special care in this case: everyone had to examine in advance whether their name was entered into the voters list (left) even though it was known that not to vote was impossible. One who did not have a note in the passport for participation in elections was subjecting him or herself to the danger of being branded a saboteur.

      And as usual, always the Yids and again the Yids were at the forefront.

On January 8, 1941 newspaper “Cīņa” wrote: “One who wishes for the Latvian people(!) the happiness of a peaceful life, the joy of creative work, confidence for his/her own and the family’s security and the welfare of the entire nation, will vote for the Bolshevik Party- for the candidates of the Communists and the Neutral Block.” But other candidates did not exist and to refuse to vote was impossible, so the result was clear.

Unclear was the matter of how in such a manner the Latvian people would be able to ensure, at the least, security for themselves and their families. It was revealed in the future…

300.jpg

One of the truly voluntary voters casting his vote.

Only few months passed and the masks of hypocrisy began to fall – behind those the cruel, cynical and bloodthirsty face of Bolshevism appeared. There was no longer the necessity to hide it – everything one can do with a live body was accomplished: – the nation was disarmed, morally humiliated, blindly subordinated to the Authority; now was the time to start preliminary works for its destruction. The will of the people was falsified: workers were «demanding death» for their countrymen, the so-called murderers of June 17 – police officials who in the execution of their official duties had taken charge of the streets during the arrival of the Bolsheviks!

Regardless of whether workers expressed «their desire» by joining a socialistic competition or volunteer for performing some job at shock speed or also «unanimously decided» to demand the highest degree of punishment for the «bloodthirsty dogs»- everywhere the same thing was repeated: a party or trade union representative with a previously-drafted resolution appeared, read it at a workers’ meeting and asked, who is against it?

People who during this half-year had seen their relatives and acquaintances being arrested for the smallest suspicions were glumly keeping silent. And it meat: «adopted unanimously».

It is terrible to murder, but it is even more terrible for a people against its desire to push a knife into a hand for killing their countrymen. The Bolsheviks did this. Their sadism reached a peak where there is nothing more villainous, their means and manners for the falsification of the people’s will reached such a level of atrocity that no power in heaven or on earth will ever be able to forgive or forget.

WE STAND FOR PEACE…

33

A red army soldiers draftee registration point decorated in a variety of colors.

Subjected to Bolshevism by force, the Latvian people were compelled to assume also «the execution of a proud obligation against its wide fatherland, the Soviet Union»- it was decided that the Latvian young people were to become red soldiers. Offices for the registration of draftees were decorated with a lying poster: «We stand for peace, but we will know how to respond to the blows of warmongers.»

At the same time Bolshevik agents were trying to explain to the draftees how dangerous it was for the Soviet Union to be surrounded by capitalists (below). There had been a time when the Baltic states with no means «were endangering» its borders. And it was not a secret to anybody that while speaking of peace the Soviet Union was secretly preparing for war. With the Baltic states it had acquired convenient starting positions to attack Germany, now,- what a fateful game!- it is the turn for Latvian young men to deliver their lives into the hands of the hated Bolshevik aggressors.

330.jpg

A political education lesson for draftees.

Children’s entertainment in the hall of the Pioneers’ Palace.

Special attention was paid to the Latvian young people: they must be raised to become «real Bolsheviks». Pioneers Groups were founded, Mopra – Red Assistance was legalized and the Komsomol organization, which must gradually provide new candidates for the Bolshevik Party, was organized.

A stressful situation occurred in the schools- if any of the children was not a member of the Pioneers Organization, then his/her parents were considered by Bolshevik teachers to be harmful for the socialistic country. And any saboteur is dangerous and must be punished. This made many to suppress their opinions and with squeezed teeth watch how their children fell into the claws of the messengers of the «new» culture.

The Riga Palace was transformed into the Pioneers Palace. And while children in their juvenile naivete were involved in childish entertainment, their fathers disappeared from workplaces, from homes – and became missing. And the dark hallways of the KGB and the locked doors of cells were keeping silent, KGB officials were silent and the guards were silent – and also those few who by some miracle were allowed to return from the KGB to life were silent also.

340.jpg

The hallway of the KGB prison.

The Bolsheviks were throwing all their skill at propagandizing and all their efforts into endless demonstrations, screaming slogans and posters. The variety of their colors, hyperbolic correlation and dimensions, loudness created artificially and by forced ways needed from one side to cover that deep indignation, anger of despair and choking hate which was smoldering within the people, from the other side – to cover up their own outrageousness and cruelty which were braking out from every order of the Bolsheviks or any command of the Party. The zenith in this matter was reached on the May 1st celebration in Riga.

35.jpg

May 1, 1941 diversity of colors

A human exhausted by endless demonstrations becomes apathetic, overstrained by long work hours of socialistic competition he becomes insensible to the outside world… In this manner Bolshevism was reaching up for the spirit of the people in order to strangle it.

POSTERS! POSTERS! POSTERS!

37.jpg

Typical Bolsheviks marching with pictures of government officials, posters and slogans.

What did need the Soviets human brought to the status of an animal, that always before his eyes there is a picture of his master and whipper, and this was brought to Latvian soil also.

370

Neither the countryside nor the villages were protected from demonstrations (center). The purposes of the Yids, which are pretty obviously symbolized by the picture to the left, first of all apply to the subordination of the largest mass of the nation to the influence of their misleading and false ideas. For the achievement of this goal their propagandizing reached the limits of an unbelievable exaggeration: in the front of the demonstrations special dance groups were going, but …

A decoration in Riga on the Brivibas Boulevard bridge.

… street decorations were arranged for every important occasion for Bolshevik celebrations. For the election campaign various means of transportation were mobilized: beginning with trams and ending with buses. Covered with posters and slogans they ran down the streets followed by the chants of special screamers groups inviting to elect, elect (even though it was not possible to abstain) and to elect … from the people «the best sons and daughters for the struggle for light and a bright future.»

And the buildings of institutions and Bolshevik organizations were covered with more and new posters therefore turning the clean Latvian streets into a mess of Yid-like diversity of colors. incomparably more funds and work were spent for propagandizing than for the entire cultural life in total. These are the statistics.

381.jpg

Bolshevik agitators, like their spies, pushed into every group of people, reached the farthest corner of the country.

39.jpg

Along with ordinary mass and people’s meetings, factory workers and business employees’ meetings were organized at their workplaces, where Bolshevik agitators were proclaiming «the true ideal of Marx – Engels – Lenin – Stalin». the attitude of the workers is reflected in their gloomy faces.

390.jpg

Skiers on propagandizing trip for the elections.

Somewhere special groups were organized for the purpose to make happy with new dogma those corners still «left in fascistic darkness».

The Yids organized and managed the radio communications with Moscow. It was desired in this way to demonstrate the authority of the Bolsheviks technique and their «care and unlimited opportunities for the increasing of the welfare of workers». At the same time, in order to increase Bolshevistic production the Latvian workers, encouraged with beautiful words, were forced to sign socialistic competition agreements one after another.

40.jpg

These were calculated to impress people with the might of Bolshevik technology and their “concern and limitless possibilities for improving the welfare of the workers.” Yet, at the same time, the people were coerced and egged on with imflammatory words to sign agreements to compete and raise productivity levels. Quantity not quality mattered. Even if the product was useless, the goal must be met.

The walls of factories and enterprises were decorated with many mysterious schedules and plans. The Latvian worker was working, a Yid – the manager of an enterprise was watching that he fulfills the quota. When after work the bored and overtired worker, according to all the ideas of propaganda, was invited by … the red corner, but certainly nobody went there. This place for glorifying Stalin and party became the butt of caustic remarks and cause for innumerable jokes.

… the same for the wall newspaper, the creation of which required much time and work, but which was read by the Yiddish censor only.

The task of the wall newspaper was to promote division and treason – the most secure support for Yid and Bolshevik power, because the newspaper provided for the right to openly and sharply denounce «undesirable facts and persons» within the factory, enterprise or educational institution. There were people who used those rights.

411.jpg

Typical Bolshevik wall newspaper.

Even from the very first days of their invasion Bolsheviks were revealing «the heights» of Soviet culture and by typical means made it to be understood, where it would also be brought – the «culturally undeveloped» country of the Latvians.

Step by step, into Latvian life flooded the ways of the new Russian culture …

430.jpg

The managers of this new « culture», of course, were the Yids, for example manager of Schools Administration Bergmanis and predecessor Grašmanis.

How deeply the Yiddish was intruded upon Latvians life certify the fact that even sports managers were almost all Yids.

Revolt against everything and against yourselves, derogate your holy of holies and yourselves and then you will acquire the happiness of equality (then you will become easy to manage and easy to enslave, therefore you will be similar to cattle because your spirit will be broken).» This was the secret idea of the Yids.

And while it was tried to push over the Latvian nation the Bolshevistic cynicism, while people were hounded each to another, while church-goers were persecuted and the crosses broken off the gravestones – in the name of freedom of religion announced by Bolsheviks! – meanwhile the Yids were practicing their religious traditions uninterrupted, because this «freedom» did not apply to them: standing in lines they continued to demand their special meat in order to serve their terrible Yiddish God, who referring to Yids religious ritual demanded the blood of animals killed slowly and by torture.

451

Lines of Yids at special a butcher’s shop in Riga.

«The most democratic Constitution in the world» -Stalin’s Constitution proclaimed the unlimited freedom of religion. Yet the Soviet Authority itself was organizing anti-religious exhibitions and museums. Soon after the arrival of the Bolsheviks all methods examined in a Soviet country were transferred also to Latvia, however without success: churches remained crowded.

At the same time the justice awareness of the nation had to suffer a heavy blow, when People’s Courts were organized, people without legal education and oftentimes without any education became judges: janitors, servants, workers, cabman … What kind of decisions could they make? How many innocents did they sentence under the pressure of blind power and their own ignorance?

Yiddish instructor giving advice on agriculture to a Latvian peasant

470.jpg

The entire ghastly year of Bolshevism was interwoven and stamped with absurdity and preposterousness. But in some cases those absurdities surpassed all imaginable limits.

471

The Yids were the ones who (in demonstrations) were the first to demand land for the landless – a people which never had any relation with the land. The Yids also were those who, when receiving agriculture machines, were training Latvian land-tillers how to use them (right). The cynicism and derision which was thrown in the face of Latvian peasant was not possible to be surpassed.

      The success of those Yiddish instructors was the as absurd and obscure as all the Bolshevistic system: an instructor taught how to raise the field while it was not harrowed. Springs were broken off the machine …

48.jpg

Already on July 10, 1940 the newspapers were announcing that «6 Yiddish citizens… desire to acquire a land plot» for the foundation of the first collective farm. When among peasants a significant worry occur, the party boss Spure announced in the press, that nobody had even thought about collective farms yet …

      Collective farms will not be! What a consolation with that was addressed to the already suspicious peasant, that he does not hide the seed material, does not delay the sowing of the fields? But the peasant did not believe, therefore he was not disappointed: in spite of all promises, in the Spring of 1941, without the least shame, the Soviet Authority founded the first collective farm. Soviet collective farms already existed, and those were followed by agricultural associations. All available means possible were used in the rush to lead the Latvian agriculture to that level which it had achieved in Soviet country in 1923.

      The most terrible job for the impoverishment of Latvian nation started. Only the physical destruction of the people was left for the future. For this the outrageous aggressors had prepared very carefully…

THUS WERE THE LATVIANS THINKING AND FEELING

It was not possible to change anything in the flow of events. The Latvian people turned away from Bolshevism, drew closer and felt the only power against outrageousness in their sense of community.

Latvian soldiers driven on the streets by red politruks, forced to demonstrate against their will, knew how to proudly express their bearing filled with honor and dignity and in suppressed indignation and awareness of being Latvian to separate from everything Bolshevistic.

The most pain for the disaster and suffering of their people was felt by Latvian young people. With gloomy, reserved faces, sunk into themselves, they were marching driven by fanfares of May 1st (below) and being aware of the deep misery of the destiny of their people.

Driven into the Pioneers Organization, so strange and disgusting for a child’s soul, little Latvians gloomily carried out imposed obligations. But Bolshevism precisely there – among the youngest – was trying to raise people suitable for themselves. The poison of betrayal was also poured into the hearts of the littlest.

51 The spirit of dissatisfaction and resistance among the people was expressing itself in every step.

The soldiers of a squadron expressed their protest of the absurdities and deliberate cruelty of the Bolsheviks in a daring poster: «We do not have a place to lay down our heads» (right).

That squadron was for a long time was without a permanent billet and was continuously relocated from one place to another.

The nation found thousands of ways in which its attitude was spontaneously expressed. The proof of this were ballot papers crossed out or covered with writing, from reports of executive committees on spoiled ballot papers given in during the January 12, 1941 voting (bottom). Regardless of the fact that such ballot papers were useless, they were later used for «rounding up» the percentage of voters.

510.jpg

Everyone knows how hard it was to have expressed even the smallest protest.

The spirit of the Latvians remained unbroken through all these trials – including that most terrible known to man – beginning with the KGB and ending with the martyr’s path to exile or death.

Such task of Bolsheviks already from the first days were executed with bustle: those not grabbed by the KGB were banished.

A receipt for having received for «loading» into a carriage and sentenced for banishment the O. Zaķis family. In the receipt, using numbers, it is written that the family consists of two people, but from the records we see that there were three. This «Certification» indicates that the official for banishment, the chairman of the operative group of the National Commissariat of the State Security of the Latvian SSR, Comrade E. Saulitis, did not properly know how to write or to add.

ON THE NIGHT OF JUNE 14, 1941

The Latvian people finally understood the fate to which it was to be subjected. On this night it saw the true face of Bolshevism. Showing no mercy to children, women or old men, during this night the Soviet Authority throughout Latvia arrested the best Latvian families, delivered them to the stations and in barred cattle carriages banished them to the Soviet Union. By such orders, in just a single night 14,693 of its honest sons and daughters were pulled out from the among the Latvian people.

LATVIANS, DO NOT FORGET!

Anyone who went behind the doors of the KGB passed through the most terrible horror, experienced the deepest torture and suffering. Behind those any persecuted Latvian who did not have the time to escape or did not know how to hide from the bloody grasp of the Bolsheviks ended his lifetime.

57.jpg

«The most democratic Constitution in the world» – the Constitution of the «father of nations and leader of working people» Stalin made sure that the Latvian people «experienced a happy, sunny future». Thousands of Latvians experienced the night of blood and torture from which the only salvation was death.

THE KGB WORKED IN THIS WAY

If it was decided to reduce somebody to ruin, the KGB simply ordered the materials necessary for this purpose be found, or to be more precise, to be created.

58.jpg

An order addressed to the Third Special Department of NKVD: to find complete and compromising information on one Klara Veise.

It was a deliberate set-up so obvious in this particular case: Klara Veise had already left Latvia a year previously, as it is certified by the document of the NKVD.

The Soviet Authority could relay on its servants: a report by writer Janis Niedre to the National Commissar of the State Security S. Šustins (at the bottom).

580 With special decrees it was ordered to collect accusatory information about those under suspicion. On every one of them the KGB had its special register. If one institution had a lack of materials, they were borrowed from another.
