The Untold Stories of Estonia and the Baltics in World War II
On August 23, 1939, the Soviet Union and Germany signed the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact.

Brothers fought against brothers, and families were divided forever. These countries disappeared from world view for almost fifty years.
I will share the true stories of ingenuity and courage that inspired The Darkest Corner of the World. as well as a peek inside the unique culture, language, and folklore of Estonia.
