Estonian Short film: Eestluse eestvedajad Londonis

Ida Lemsalu and Aili Eistrat are 90-year-old Estonians who fled their homeland due to the Soviet occupation. They both spent time living in German DP camps before settling in England. Ida and Aili have been living in London for the past 70 years but their hearts are still in Estonia. Both ladies are active in the Estonian community in London and this film was made as part of a project for the National Archives.
