In the course of lectures about the Latvian History and Personalities "Personalities. Events. Changes." this lesson will be focused on the socio-economic and political situation in Latvia after the restoration of independence, which can be described by the following keywords: "repshik", denationalization, political populism and "Godmanis furnaces". These are just some of the concepts we will study together in search of answers to the question: how people in Latvia lived, survived and got over the period of the change of power. The focus is on a personality who experienced "both Latvias" - pre-war and restored Latvia - former President Vaira Vike-Freiberga. During the lesson, we will look for answers to the questions: what was the situation in Latvia after the restoration of independence, what myths and legends are related to this period and, finally, what was the daily reality since the restoration of the independent Latvia.
