Memorial to the Victims of Communism

  Pirita tee 78     more than a year ago

This striking memorial is dedicated to all Estonian people who suffered under the terror inflicted by the Soviet Union. There are two parts to the memorial - ‘Journey’ and ‘Home Garden’. ‘Journey’ consists of name plaques all of the victims. Apple trees and honey bees are the symbols of the ‘Home Garden’, marking a place for the victims yet to be identified. The sites of terror are also marked with informative texts. Estonia was occupied by the Soviet Union from June 17, 1940 to August 20, 1991. More than 75,000 Estonians were murdered, imprisoned or deported over this period. Estonia lost one of every five persons from its population of slightly over one million.
