Riga-Waffen SS March { 40 images } Created 12 Dec 2011

Latvians pay tribute to soldiers who fought in Nazi Germany's Waffen SS divisions, while nearby Russians held a counter protest to recall war crimes committed against Jews and other minorities.

For many Latvians the annual procession from a Lutheran cathedral to the Freedom Monument in downtown Riga, the capital, is a memorial event for Latvian SS soldiers, known as Legionnaires, who fought for independence during World War II.
