Donations to the Latvian Museum in Memory of Lilita Bergs

Jun 29, 2023

With deep respect and gratitude, the American Latvian Association commemorates Lilita Bergs, the late director of the ALA Latvian Museum (born on February 15, 1941, in Liepāja, Latvia, died on August 26, 2022, in Rockville, Maryland). Lilita’s life-long work involved protecting and managing Latvia’s cultural heritage, telling the stories from the Displaced Persons era, and interpreting the Latvian-American immigrant experience. Her efforts will long be remembered.
