The virtual exhibition "Road to the unknown" talks about the reasons behind and the results of the March 1949 deportation of Baltic peoples (i.e., Estonians, Latvians, and Lithuanians). In addition, the exhibit is focused on revealing the systemic nature and scope of these events, as well as their impact on human life at the individual level.
The exhibition was prepared by students at Tallinn University, who came together within the framework of the university-wide LIFE (Learning in Interdisciplinary Focused Environment) project.
The project supervisors are Linda Kaljundi (Tallinn University), Mare Oja (Tallinn University), Allar Tui (Estonian Institute of Historical Memory).
The exhibition is the joint effort of Tallinn University students Kärt Kool, Maria Kunts, Joonas Kuusemäe, Mihkel Laur, Evo-Richard Lode, Gretelin Malbe, Louisa Pedak, Andreas Sepp, Mari-Liis Truusööt, Ott Valdma, Riko Piir-Veselov.
The exhibition uses materials from the collections of the Estonian National Archives, the Estonian National Museum, Tartu City Museum, Vabamu, and Viljandi Museum.
