Saldus Soviet Union era Russian World War II Military Cemetery –
Located at the north end of Pilsētas Cemetery

Located at the north end of Pilsētas Cemetery, Kapu iela 1a is the Russian World War II Cemetery where there are 17 headstones with names of those who fell during World War II. There are also 11 headstones of those of the unknown.
 
 
Unfortunately I was not able to find any more information on the history of this small World War II Cemetery. As I have traveled through Latvia, I have found this of so many small militaries cemeteries be they from World War I or World War II, be they Latvian, German, or even Russian. It is like they are the finial resting places of the forgotten...... These soldiers gave their lives for what they believed in and should not be forgotten as so many are now today!
