E-exhibition "Resistance to the Soviet regime in Estonia 1940-1991"

On 20 August 2021, 30 years passed since Estonia’s independence was restored. Before this, for more than half a century, Estonia was occupied – by the Soviet Union for most of that time, but also by the Germans for three years during World War II.
