Celebrating the Restoration of Estonia’s Independence in Toronto

August 31, 2021

August 20th marked 30 years since the restoration of Estonia’s independence. The Museum of Estonian’s Abroad, VEMU, celebrated this historical day with an online event. We offered the full VEMU 9th Fundraising Dinner program from spring 2021 including interviews, music, and archival footage at a discounted price. The archival footage of professor Marju Lauristin’s November 4, 1989 lecture held at the University of Toronto and titled “Estonia’s Political Situation” (Eesti poliitiline olukord) was also available to view free of charge. How precise were her predictions on Estonia’s independence? You can find out by watching the lecture here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VQAs6oIgQY&t=705s
