The 18th November 1918 - a cool and a grey day of autumn. But in the history of Latvian nation it has left an indelible brightness...
This day, there are Latvian flags flapping in the wind, there are Latvian men and women flocking in the hall of the theatre - soon all the theatre is full, people are waiting for the members of National Congress (Tautas Padome)...
Everyone stands while listening to the inaugural adress...
First time "Dievs svētī Latviju" ("God bless Latvia") rings out - as the National Anthem...
After concluding the ceremonial, anthem ring outs once again - this time the overjoyed listeners sing it 3 times one by one... Many of them can't keep back their tears, and very slowly the witnesses of this historical moment lift out...

Finally, finally - the Freedom of Latvia is acclaimed...

The man in the last picture is the Head of the temporary National Congress - Kārlis Ulmanis. Later - in 1934, he became as the dictator of Latvia (authoritative period in Latvia).
