Displaced Persons Exhibition to Take Place in NYC 15 - 26 August 2016

If you are Estonian or have an interest in the history of the Baltic peoples post World War Two, then you might find the upcoming exhibition from the United Nations most interesting. Entitled 'No home to go to', the Baltic Displaced Persons exhibition will run from the 15th - 26th August 2016 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. 

Here's an excerpt from the website;

Fleeing battle fronts and fearing persecution, thousands of civilians continue to seek asylum in neighbouring countries.  Families, many with small children, seek safety and a better life.  They languish in makeshift communities where food and accommodations are minimal and relief is hard to come by.  Their plight is creating an unprecedented humanitarian crisis.
