Attacks and migrations
20.01.2015 - 30.08.2015
The Exhibition gives an overview of the destiny of Estonians and the ethnic minorities residing in Estonia since the establishment of the Republic of Estonia until the end of occupations.
The Republic of Estonia established on February 24, 1918, consisted primarily of Estonians (88.2%), and it was multiethnic. In addition to the Estonians, Russians, Germans, Swedes, Latvians, Jews, Finns and others lived in the country.
The Second World War, mobilizations, deportations, escapes and industrial migration that followed changed the population of Estonia significantly.
