I'd be interested to find out which camp too.

Remember that 95% of the Jews that lived in Latvia were killed in the
Holocaust. The chance that any survived was unlikely. All the Jews in my
ancestral shtetl of Sassmachen I have read were killed. The tombstones in
the cemetary were used in the 1960s in a Soviet road project. :-(
