Remembering the victims of the Soviet mass deportations

Today Estonia honours the victims of the June mass deportation with a “Sea of Tears” in Tallinn. On the 14th of June 1941 the Soviet authorities deported approximately 11,000 people, including children and the elderly to remoted areas in Siberia. Many perished in the harsh conditions, few made it home. Such crimes should never be forgotten.
