About
Purtse forest hill is the highest point in the area, and is thought to have been a sacred place for ancient Estonians. A ‘memorial park for victims of evil’ was established on the hill in 1991, when an oak tree was planted on the 50th anniversary of the 1941 deportations. Today the park is full of oak trees, planted by county and government representatives and members of various organisations, as well as by former Estonian presidents Lennart Meri and Arnold Ruutel.Did you know…?*The park features an Estonian ‘map of pain’ – the lawn has a map of the country marking the number of people who were deported in every county.

This is memorial for WWII innocents. The memorial should be looked after well. With proper care and manicure.

This area is dedicated to Estonian people who were forcefully deported to Siberia, some never returned & their fate is unknown. Trees have been planted in memory of those that were lost. To visit the site you will need to park at the bottom and walk up, surrounding the area are lovely fields. Since I was there in June the fields were ablaze with rapeseed flowers which is a common crop in this area. Provided history that I was not aware of until I visited the site
