AT THE CROSSROADS
The exposition highlights human choices in historically significant periods: in 1905, during the First World War, during the Latvian War of Independence (1918–1921), on the eve of the Second World War.
The harmonious flow of life in peacetime in this exhibition contrasts with the turmoil caused by the great politics.
The artistic image of the exhibition is created using a wide range of objects, including paintings by the little-known Latvian artist of Swedish origin Toivo Gustav Magnus Löfving (1861–1917) and the popular landscape painter Ansis Artums (1908–1997).
The exposition is complemented by the products of the Kuznetsov factory donated by visitors. Special attention is paid to the events of 1919 in Tukums and Latvia, when the 1st Infirmary of the Baltic Landeswehr operated in Durbe Castle.
The exhibition presents the formation and structure of Landeswehr, as well as the romantic story of the sister Elizabeth Hirschheide (1898-1945) and the doctor Alfred Trost (1891-1953).
