The Electronic Memorial Dedicated to the Victims of Communism

Tens of thousands of Estonians were repressed, deported or outright murdered during the Soviet occupations which took place from 1940-1941 and 1944-1991. These Estonians were innocent people going about their normal lives until the Soviets deemed them enemies of the state and changed their fates forever. We will never forget these Soviet atrocities and will forever remember the victims whose lives were tragically lost.
