Legenda are a Latvian/international group of volunteers who search the battlefields of Latvia for missing soldiers from WW1 and WW2.
We are all volunteers and receive no funding to do this invaluble work.
We are not crowd funding to pay for our volunteers trips to search as they are happy to fund this themselves but are looking for funding for the following :
Any donations large or small are very gratefully received and could help bring closure for these soldiers and their living relatives. Thank you.
The big international expedition of 2018 is finished.
We found and exhumed two Imperial Russian mass graves from WWI where we found 10 soldiers, MIA German WWI soldier in shallow field grave a lost WWII German cemetery from which we recovered 16 soldiers and one lost Soviet mass grave where are more than 80 soldiers but we are not sure on the number as the work is still in progress and on the last day we have found one Latvian SS soldier buried in trench.
