Jānis (Žanis) Lipke was a Latvian rescuer of Jews in Riga during World War II.
He is honoured as one of the Righteous among the Nations.

In the yard that is the end point of the tiny street, an underground bunker had been dug out. That is where Žanis Lipke had made a hiding place for people saved from the Jewish ghetto.
During the Second World War eight to twelve people used this 3x3 meter hole in the ground as a shelter, often for long periods of time.
It is important to stress that the German police never found this shelter, Lipke was never caught and none of the people involved was ever betrayed.
