The Kenneth Hudson Award 2014 goes to Žanis Lipke Memorial, Riga, Latvia

This new museum, inaugurated in 2013 by the President of Latvia and the President of Israel, commemorates a human rescue operation devised by Zhanis Lipke, a Latvian dockworker, who succeeded in saving the lives of over 50 Jews from the Riga Ghetto during the Second World War. The captivating story, brilliant new building and innovative presentation make the visitors’ experience exceptionally rich and deep.

The Kennet Hudson award is named after the founder of the European Museum Forum:
