Description

“GOD’s lost sparrows”, DVD movie

Toward the end of World War II, when it became clear that Latvia would be occupied by the Soviet Army again, some 150,000 people fled to Germany. These were representatives of various professions- farmers, business people, former politicians, the creative intelligence and ordinary working people- who had already experienced the horrors of the “year of terror.”
Nearly one million people from Eastern Europe flied the Soviet regime, Latvians, who were known as “deepers” (for “displaced persons”) or as Little Birds of God, tried to establish “Little Latvia” at displaced persons camps for themselves as refugees.
In the late 1940’s and nearly 1950’s, Latvian families from the camps in Germany traveled to Great Britain, the United States, Canada and Australia. When Latvia regained its independence, some of the emigres returned home, but most remain scattered throughout the world. This film speaks to destinies of families that traveled to Germany in 1944.
