Riga was occupied by Germans from July, 1941 until October of 1944. It was then occupied by the Soviets who established several prisoner of war camps in the area.
This cemetery has the remains of 433 German POWs who died in the period of 6 March to December 1945 in a war prison hospital.
In the Fall of 2012, all remains were moved to Beberbeku Vâcu karavîru kapi
Even the walls and gate were removed. The only thing remaining is the original large metal cross, a new plate indicating the move and a field of grass.
