This fall the Baltic community is commemorating the 70th anniversary of the great escape that took thousands of Estonians, Latvians and Lithuanians to the West. In affiliation with that, the Estonian Diaspora Academy in collaboration with Tallinn University Institute of History and Expatriate Estonian Literature Centre is organising a conference for migration and diaspora researchers as well as archivists and museologists who are active in the field.
The event will take place in Tallinn University on September 18-19 2014. On September 20th an oral history day will be held in collaboration with the Estonian Museum of Occupations. There the floor will be given to representatives of the Estonian diaspora who can share their memories, life experience and opinions.
