Erected in 1977 to honour all of the local sailors and fishermen lost at sea, this massive communist-style monument depicts a woman gazing out onto the Baltic hoping to catch a glimpse of her missing loved one. Later after independence a plaque was added commemorating a little known incident on April 8, 1950 when a US Navy airplane carrying 10 American airmen was shot down by the Soviets off the coast of Liepāja.
