While vi­o­lence and blood­shed was the un­for­tu­nate end re­sult in other oc­cu­pied na­tions of the USSR, the rev­o­lu­tion­ary songs of the Es­to­ni­ans an­chored their strug­gle for free­dom, which was ul­ti­mately ac­com­plished with­out the loss of a sin­gle life. Re­fresh­ments will be served and a mod­er­ated dis­cus­sion will fol­low. The event is open to the pub­lic, and ad­mis­sion is free.
