Latvian Chanukah Present - Day 1 #latvia

Nancy Siegel

Throughout Chanukah we will be posting “presents” from Ann Rabinowitz — a series of articles focused on Latvia but of general interest to Jewish genealogy researchers. Ann has written extensively about Jewish genealogy.

A Chronology of Events in Latvia, 1920-1923
by Ann Rabinowitz 

In memory of my great uncle Max Hillman, who was born in Bauska, Latvia, and who started me on my genealogical research, which is so long ago now, I am posting a piece about Latvia every day throughout Chanukah. The posts will be about people, events, and daily life.

Today, I will begin with a chronology for the period of 1920 – 1923, which is based on articles that appeared on the Historical JewishPress website in Israel.
