New memorial unveiled on Puise Beach dedicated to those who perished at sea in 1944

In the autumn of 1944 tens of thousands of people fled Estonia trying to escape the advancing Soviet army. Sadly, not everyone made it to safety and an estimated 5000  Estonians lost their lives as they tried to reach Sweden. A new memorial was unveiled on Saturday in Lääne County dedicated to those who perished.
