The Mass Flight of Estonia 1944: Commemorative Sculpture

During World War 2, Estonia was occupied by the Soviet Union, forcing around 80,000 Estonian citizens to flee their homes, becoming displaced persons and refugees. Many perished during their escape to the west, facing death, imprisonment, or exile in the Siberian Gulag. Despite their hardships, they sought new beginnings worldwide. Their descendants are now commemorating their sacrifices with a memorial sculpture by Elo Liiv to be erected on September 21, 2024, on the bank of the Pärnu river in Estonia, where many said their final farewells. This monument will honor all Estonians who departed during that tumultuous period.
