A Short Life Story of Unknown Man. Started in August 1944
Апісанне

In 2010, film director Jānis Streičs donated to the Latvian Folklore Archive a notebook with an autobiographical story of an unknown person entitled "A Short Life Story. Begun in August 1944". The events begin at the end of August 1944 in the Central Prison, then in the Salaspils concentration camp, from where the author was transferred to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp in Germany. After the end of the war, he returned to Riga. The last date mentioned is August 1947. In the life story, the author has written about his life and the lives of others in concentration camps and lazarettos, tuberculosis hospitals and post-war Riga. Written with admirable dedication, focusing on the smallest details of daily life and everyday life - food, clothing, insects that keep one awake at night, domestic disputes and other things that characterise the era and society. Alongside this, there is also writing on daily routines, work, punishment, death, hope, survival in the post-war years, love, etc.

The autobiographical story takes up 104 pages, carefully and sparingly written from one side of the page to the other. The autobiographical narrative begins as a letter to his mother from Rīga Central Prison. The author writes: "I have decided to write my life from the time that you and I parted. I don't know if it's good or bad, but I think it will be easier for me if I put my experiences down on paper." However, what is written goes far beyond the format of a letter. Already on page 10, the first chapter 'On the road to Germany' appears. And the following story is also divided into chapters. The division into chapters has been respected by dividing the writing into units in the digital archival platform.
