Mr. Irbe, I grateful for your article. I saddened by Mr, Ravid's reporting. The innuendo, the slanted reporting is so obvious; does this newspaper accept such reporting as factual or misinformed opinions? I have made a conscious decision never to be quiet when some Latvians of my generation or older begin to speak of Jewish people. I have visited the various memorials in Latvia & I know our painful, tragic history has to be revealed & talked about. But then I expect a journalist of such a newspaper as Haaretz would be objective, accurate in reporting the facts.
