This remarkable story takes place in a country that even today wrestles with its collective conscience. At the beginning of the war there were 200,000 Jews but by 1945 fewer than 2,000 remained. Tens of thousands were shipped to death camps while another 130,000 were shot by squads, made up almost exclusively of the victims’ own next door neighbours.

However, there were a brave few who were neither cowards nor collaborators. It’s their sacrificial selflessness that make it possible today to share this moving account of the triumph of good over the jackbooted evil that rampaged through the Baltic lands.

Ruta’s Closet teaches a lesson that must never be forgotten because today’s news headlines show that the unthinkable could indeed happen again.
