This is a place you need to visit if you are in Estonia to get to know more about the history of this country and those that died fighting for freedom under the Soviet occupation

To a certain extent you are obligated to go and see this if you are interested in how history unfolded in Estonia. Especially if you are bringing a group of high schoolers to Tallinn. And go see the other monuments next to it - one for Germans who fought against the Soviets, and a Soviet monument which seems to be for the battle of Tallinn in September '44. The latter is decaying and has warning signs not to enter - but if there was a real danger of total collapse, then it probably would be demolished as there's a busy road just below.

This is beautiful and thought provoking. The long passage is interesting ., then you realise the names of everyone lost person is written . The walk then takes on a whole new meaning . People are respectful . And candles for lost loved ones are often lite . Very humbling.

This new memorial is dedicated to over 22000 people who were killed during communistic occupation of Estonia. It was opened 23.8.
Memorial resembles Vietnam War memorial in Washington DC, as it black and has names of the victims engraved.
In the future 170 apple trees will blossom in the area.

You don't get the sheer scale of this monument from the photos and it is incredibly moving to read the transcripts about the horrors that a regime inflicted on Estonia (amongst many other nations).

We were taken here as part of an accessible tour from a cruise ship, with no previous knowledge of it from any of the tourist information on Tallin that we had read. It was a warm Sunday morning in June. We stayed around an hour listening to our guide's account of the events that this memorial was built for. In all this time we only saw another 3 people there, yet it felt that it was very much a place where people were very important,both the many who had perished/"disappeared" during the Soviet period and their relatives. It was extremely moving reading all the information at the site. I was particularly struck by the symbolism of the beautiful silver honey bees on the black wall. It is a place that I will not easily forget not least because of how it sharply contrasted with the tourist areas of Tallin that we subsequently visited and which were anything but accessible for wheelchair users. If you get the opportunity do visit.

The monument is very touching.
Both the architecture and the music is very special. Victims of communist deserve respect and to be remembered.

This brand new memorial for communism victims is a powerful reminder to all of us what can happen if we just don’t care enough. There’s probably not a single family in Estonia that hasn’t been victim to communism and this monument has been long time waiting.
What they’ve managed to build for the 100th birthday of independent Estonia is a very imposing and moving memorial, thoughtful and powerful. While it gives all the grieving families a chance to see the names of their lost loved ones in print on a tombstone, a place where to light a candle and leave flowers for those who perished and never came back to be buried in home soil, it’s also a beautiful relaxing place for everyone else to take a stroll, gather thoughts and reminisce.
The concept is beautiful. Passing through the corridor, looking at names left and right... then reaching to the “home garden” with its light, airiness and apple trees... can’t imagine how moving and beautiful this is going to be in the springtime.
Worth your while to make a trip, look out at the sea and think of your own loved ones.
