A commemoration sign for refugees fleeing to Sweden

In Ošvalki, which is between Jūrkalne and Sārnate, there is a commemorative sign, “Sail of Hope,” which commemorates Latvians who sought to cross the Baltic Sea to Sweden during the latter period of World War II in 1944 and 1945.  The sign is in the dunes between the road and the sea.
