This book summarises 50 of the most significant events in Latvian history for a period of 100 years (1918-2018) as discussed in Mārtiņš Ķibilds’ TV documentary “Keys. Discoveries from a century of Latvian history”. These historical events are viewed from an unusual perspective, “unlocking the doors” to less well-known and particularly intriguing facts.
“Whatever was once set in motion will never end,” said Mārtiņš Ķibilds, who, though not a historian, found history to be one of the greatest passions of his life. This is also reflected in his analysis of events, which suggests a detective-like pursuit of facts and sharp-eyed perspective on less well-known, including inconvenient, events in Latvia’s past.
The new publication does not attempt to be an academic study or an encyclopaedic collection of facts. Instead, it invites every reader – irrespective of age and knowledge of history – to take part in a critical discussion to dispel myths about decisive events in the past and trace significant correlations between them, as well as create links with the present.
