Building upon her celebrated autobiography Distant Fathers, Italian author Marina Jarre returns to her native Latvia for the first time since she left as a ten-year-old girl in 1935. In Return to Latvia??a masterful collage-like work that is part travelogue, part memoir, part ruminative essay??she looks for traces of her murdered father whom she never bid farewell. Jarre visits the former Jewish ghetto of Riga and its southern forest where tens of thousands were slaughtered in a 1941 mass execution by Nazi death squads with active participation by Latvian collaborators. Here she attempts to reconcile herself with her past, or at least to heal the wounds of a truncated childhood. Piecing together documents and memories, Return to Latvia explores immense guilt, repression, and the complicity of Latvians in the massacres of their Jewish neighbors, highlighting vast Holocaust atrocities that occurred outside the confines of death camps and in plain view.… (mere)

Return to Latvia, written by Marina Jarre and translated by Ann Goldstein, is a memoir that is both personal and historical, allowing the reader to both accompany Jarre during this part of her life as well as think about how we, as humans, can so easily be swayed by evil while never thinking ourselves evil. And that second aspect is one we all need to consider during our current environment of authoritarianism and the othering of various groups of people.

As a memoir this is a powerful book. It is hard to separate the personal from the historical in part because they are heavily intertwined but also because of how Jarre weaves them together in her telling. Personal recollection, genealogical searches, and historical information become one story. At times it may seem that the historical aspects takes center stage, then the personal, but due to the often quite short sections of each they blend together in the reader's mind to form a coherent whole.

I would certainly recommend this to anyone with an interest in memoirs, I also think this will be of interest to those interested in history more broadly and Holocaust history in particular. It is also a cautionary tale for those of us trying to eliminate or, more realistically, limit the prejudices and biases currently plaguing not just any single country but the entire world.
