All his life Ilmars Knagis had been disturbed by thoughts about his fathers contribution and that of thousands of other Latvians who had established the independent State of Latvia, but whose remains were now scattered and forgotten in a strange and hostile country. Thus, in August 1995, in the former death camp territories of Vyatlag and Usollag, six-meter high crosses, cut from pine trees were erected. In the foundations of these crosses urns with sand from Latvia and plaques with the inscription To the citizens of Latvia -- victims of communist terror in Latvian, Russian, and English were entombed.
