Ilus Eesti, beautiful Estonia. My family's homeland. Estonia's countryside and people have an endearing gentleness about them which you fall in love with slowly and imperceptibly. I have nothing but respect and admiration for Estonians' courage and determination to survive despite centuries of repression, tyranny and foreign occupation. This blog aims to promote Estonian news, history and culture and seeks to enlighten readers about everything this unique country has to offer.

Migrant Hostel Photographic Exhibition, "A Place to Call Home", Opens at the National Archives - Australia
The National Archives in Canberra has launched a new photographic exhibition giving an insight into life in Australia's migrant centres after WWII. From a collection of 20,000 photographs, 50 images are featured in the exhibition. The first migrant centre established in Australia was Bonegilla in Victoria in 1947. Other centres were opened soon after and located all across Australia to accommodate the mass intake of European refugees after WWII.
The exhibition runs from 30 May 2014 - 30 September 2014.
