Ei tea kuhu viivad mind saatuse tiivad,
ja maha jäävad kodumaa rannad ja liivad.


Tens of thousands fled  Soviet terrorism as it swept into Estonia, and there are an equal number of stories, and memories, of the dangers of their journey to freedom. Sadly, few of those stories have been written down, to remind the latter generations what their antecedents chose to risk so that they could live in a free country, whichever one they chose to settle in.

I have written mine, which I have titled “Against All Odds”. It’s actually a trilogy: our escape, our stay in Sweden, and our departure from there in 1948, on a 72-foot old fishing trawler with 69 people; a journey of 59 days, surviving two storms, that nearly ended our journey.

If interested I will forward it. My email is  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Finnish PM's First Visit to Estonia

Finland's new prime minister Sanna Marin made her first official visit to Estonia on January 10. Marin met with Prime Minister Jüri Ratas at Stenbock House on Toompea Hill where they spoke at a joint press conference. It was Marin's first official visit to Estonia and the second official visit she has made as prime minister after being sworn into office in December. Her first visit was to Sweden earlier last week.


Layers of time colliding – the 3 hommiku/maa targad, biblical Magi or Wise Men/Kings from the East arrived in what Estonians, like Italians call Firenze (Florence) on January 6th this past week. Dressed in Renaissance era clothing, as when the “Cavalcata dei Magi” (Cavalcade or Procession of the Magi) tradition began here in 1417, lords and ladies, falconers and others, led by drummers, the gift bearers (seen here) and the three kings on horseback, now pass by designer shops such as Chanel and Fossil. The procession ends in the Piazza del Duomo where a live Tarkade kummardamine (Adoration of the Magi) plays out in front of the theatrical nativity scene.  Photo: Anu Hint

In 1944, thousands of Estonians escaped invading Russia by migrating across the seas to Sweden, Finland, and beyond. Few have memory of this today—but those who do vividly remember all the little details: the smell of the boat, the taste of the bread... With this in mind, photographer Maria Spann set out to capture these particular memories through the eyes of those who endured this migration, and the objects they brought with them. Each set of photographs tells a story: of memory, of loss, and of new beginnings.
