Mērija Grīnberga’s and the Grosvalds Family Story or Journey with Breaks and Stopovers

Languages of publication



The article informs about the exhibition “Mērija's Journey. The Grosvalds Family Story” at the Latvian National Museum of Art (06.09.-24.11.2019) and the docudrama “Mērija's Journey” (2018). Both projects were based on scientific research about an important figure in Latvia's cultural history – Mērija Grīnberga (1909-1975). She was an offspring of a wealthy family and, being a museum employee, accompanied the values of Latvia's museums evacuated by the Nazi regime to the present Czech Republic; when the Red Army captured the territory, she guarded these values on their way back to the Soviet Latvia, thus saving a large part of the country's history from destruction and oblivion.
