More like 1991-2011 the legacy of the rest. Although the problems of being torn between German and Russian Imperialism are very interesting I quite often read about them with having a passing interest in the WW's. I was just curious to get an idea of how you recover from just these sorts of oppressions and how it relates to how the country, culture and people have 'weathered the storm' so to speak.
The Barricades were events that took place between 13 and 27 January 1991 in Latvia. Latvia, which had declared independence from the Soviet Union a year earlier, anticipated that Soviet Union might attempt to violently regain control over the country.
