Remembering the victims of second and largest mass deportations of Estonians by the Soviets

68 years ago today, 3% of the Estonian population were seized and deported by the Soviets to remote areas of Siberia. Candles will be lit on Tallinn's Freedom Square today in the shape of Estonia, and the names of the 32,000 people directly affected by the deportations will be projected onto a large screen. 

May this crime never be forgotten.
