I spent a very moving day with Jelena touring both World War II monuments and Holocaust sites. We visited Rumbula, Zanis Lipke Monument, and Salaspils Concentration Camp. Once again, Jelena shared her vast knowledge of her country's history, and continually demonstrated her respectful attitude toward the Holocaust victims. This was a difficult day for both of us, as touring Holocaust sites is an emotionally draining experience. I was very glad to be touring with someone as sensitive as Jelena.
