Patriots or nazi nostalgic?

Remembrance day of the Latvian legionnaires is a day on 16 March, when soldiers of the Latvian Legion, part of the Waffen-SS, are commemorated. The day has been controversial as the Legion was a Nazi unit, and for that, some people looks at the Remembrance day of the Latvian legionnaires as a Nazi honouring event. Others hold that the Legion was a purely military unit fighting against the Soviet Union that had occupied Latvia in 1940 and was not itself responsible for any of Nazi war crimes.
