Ep. 63 Latvia: Yuri Chubarov aka 'The Hunter' and Eduard Roschmann aka 'The Butcher of Riga'

Description

Sveiki!

This week we are off to LATVIA!

Georgie kicks us off with the story of Yuri Chubarov aka ‘The Hunter’ and how the collapse of the Soviet Union informed the horrific events that followed.

Kate then takes us through first hand accounts of Eduard Roschmann aka ‘The Butcher of Riga’ and the history of Nazi built ghettos during the Second World War.

There's a lot of pre-ramble and history in this one- you have been warned! Join us this week for historical crimes, Nazi’s on the run and revenge fuelled hunts.

Paldies!
