The former building of the State Security Committee on Brīvības Street 61, Rīga, or the so-called corner house currently hosts the exhibition of the Museum of the Occupation of Latvia's History of the KGB in Latvia, which tells the story of the repression implemented by the Soviet occupying power against the inhabitants of Latvia over 47 years.
The museum, with its campaign, draws attention to the historic importance of the building and recalls the fragility of democracy and freedom - "it takes hundreds of flashlights to fight the darkness".
Any flashlights that work and have a battery may be donated. The flashlights will be accepted during the museum's working hours. No candles or anything with open flame will be accepted.
Free tours will also be held at the museum during the week from November 11 to 18 if you apply in advance.
