A monument to the victims of communism was unveiled on Thursday, August 23 as part of the Estonia 100 summer celebration programme.


The memorial consists of two parts, one entitled “The Journey”, the other “Home Garden”. A plaque mounted on “The Journey” has the names of more than 22 000 victims engraved on it. The interior “Home Garden” area with its planted apple orchard and bee sculptures  symbolises dreams, memories and homesickness.
