The night battle of Tehumardi took place in the late night hours of 8 October 1944. The Tehumardi night battle was one of the bloodiest battles of World War II that took place on Saaremaa. The battle was fought between Germans and Russians. The Russians came out as the winners of this battle.
Good to know: One had to differentiate between one’s own people and the enemy predominantly by means of the helmet. In memory of the dead soldiers a monument was erected - it has the shape of a sword bearing depictions of male faces.
