Geocache Description:


[LV] Laika posma no 1944. gada rudens lidz 1945. gada pavasarim,
baidoties no atkartotas PSRS okupacijas, dala Latvijas pilsonu
centas pa juras celu ka vienigo iespejamo noklut neitralaja
Zviedrija. Izbraukšana no Latvijas notika slepeniba, parasti
bez uzskaites. Latvijas beglu skaitu Zviedrija var minet tikai
aptuveni - ap 5000 personu. Beglu laivu cela merkis bija Latvijai
vistuvaka Zviedrijas teritorijas dala - Gotlandes sala, un
braucieni visbiežak sakas Kurzemes rietumu krasta (no
Jurkalnes lidz Gotlandes salai ir aptuveni 170 kilometri).
Braucieni bija loti bistami, jo beglus apdraudeja vacu patrulas gan
krasta, gan jura, minas, padomju aviacija un karakugi, ka ari
vetras, jo parcelšanas bieži notika atklatai jurai
nepiemerotas un parslogotas laivas bez pietiekamiem degvielas un
partikas krajumiem, juras kartem un navigacijas instrumentiem.
Projekta autors telnieks A.Burvis pieminas zimi veidojis ka
latviešu beglu pieminu simbolizejošu ceribu buru.
Taja pamanama plaisa ir škiršanas dramatisma,
parvaramo grutibu un sapju simbols musu tautas dalai
svešuma.

Slepnis – small izmera kastite ar viesu
gramatu, zimuli un sikumiem apmainai.

[ENG] During the period from
1944th autumn until the 1945th spring, for fear of re-occupation of
the Soviet Union, part of Latvian citizens tried by the sea as the
only possible way to get to neutral Sweden. Departure from the
Latvia was held in secret, often without tracking. Latvian refugees
in Sweden may be mentioned about 5000 persons. Refugee boat
destination from Latvia was the closest part of Sweden territory
– Gotland island, and journey most often began on the west
coast of Kurzeme (from Jurkalne to Gotland island is about 170 km).
Trips were very dangerous, because refugees threatened by storms,
german patrols and sea mines, soviet aircraft and warships as well
as moving in open sea with overloaded boats without sufficient fuel
and food supplies, marine charts and navigation instruments. Author
of the project – sculptor A.Burvis made memorial sign by the
Latvian refugee memory symbolizing sail of hope. It is a noticeable
gap in the divorce drama, overcome difficulties and pain are part
of the symbol of our nation abroad.

Cache – small size box
with logbook, pencil and things for exchange.
