Following the October premiere of the musical “Cukurs. Herberts Cukurs”, old arguments have resurfaced once again regarding the scandalous figure of the musical's main character. Who is he? Is he a national hero, who completed a flight to Gambia in 1933, or is he a criminal, who became a member of the execution squad of Viktors Arajs in 1941? Cukurs’s supporters point out the lack of evidence that he killed Jews with his own hands. Nevertheless, such evidence exists, which the “Open City” magazine is providing you today.
