In search of Estonians from Geislingen Displaced Person (DP) Camp

Documentary filmmaker Helga Merits is currently making her latest film 'Coming Home Soon' and needs your help. The film tells the story of Estonian children who fled their homeland in 1944 with their mothers, sibling and sometimes fathers, seeking refuge in the West. On their journey they didn’t know where the dangerous roads would take them, and when they made it to the refugee camps, they knew it was temporary.

In order for Helga to complete her film she needs more film footage, photographs of people arriving at Geislingen and events from daily life. If you or a family member was at Geislingen then Helga would love to hear from you. Please contact her via her new website here: Helga Merits
