Pirita tee 78, Kesklinna linnaosa, Tallinn
The memorial is dedicated to the Estonian people who suffered from Soviet terror. Estonia lost the fifth of its slightly over one million inhabitants, with more than 75,000 assassinated, imprisoned, or deported.
The memorial consists of two parts: Teekond (Journey) has more than 22,000 plaques with the victims’ names and the symbolic Koduaed (Home Garden) with informative texts and location stones. A monument to Estonian military officers who fell victim to communist terror is part of the memorial. The Home Garden combines dreams, memories, and homesickness. The symbols include apple trees planted and bees depicted on the wall.
The monument complex commemorates the victims of communism and is a reminder of the fragility of freedom and human life.
