Białorusini na Łotwie w okresie okupacji hitlerowskiej (1941–1945)
Belarusians in Latvia during the Nazi occupation (1941–1945
Languages of publication
In order to implement the prepared Generalplan Ost (GPO) [English: Master Plan East], providing the colonization of the Baltic states as well as their Germanisation, special regulation concerning national minorities was issued. The existence and activity of the minorities were accepted with the caveat that their actions will be carefully controlled by the occupation authorities. This caused the increase in activity of the Belarusian political activists in Latvia. As a result, during the German occupation of Latvia, Belarusian education and culture enjoyed their second heyday (after the period of the 1920s and the early 1930s) in the history of the Republic of Latvia.
