The European International Centre of Tolerance, within the frame of which the Shamir Society and the Museum of Riga Ghetto and of the Holocaust in Latvia function, aims to unite the society and preserve historical memory of human tragedies in order to bar them from being repeated in the future. The Shamir Society engages in cultural, educational, journalistic and research activities, organizing Holocaust history educational programmes for all the age groups, holds the festivals of Jewish culture and such memorial events as the annual marsh “Steps of the living persons”. It also conducts an annual conference on issues of the Holocaust and of the modern radicalism. The Museum of Riga Ghetto and of the Holocaust in Latvia, active since 2010, offers permanent and guest exhibitions dedicated to the human tragedy. The principal exhibition of the Museum is the Memory Wall that carries the names of 100,000 Jews exterminated on the Latvian territory during the Holocaust. In the Museum area, there are artistic studios for children and adults, workshops and hobby clubs. Since the opening of the Museum, it has been already visited by more than 100,000 persons.
