Estonian museums need help collecting ESTO-related material

From Estoworld:

The XII ESTO Days will be taking place in Helsinki, Tartu and Tallinn in 2019 and for the occasion, there will be a joint exhibition; in preparation, the Estonian National Museum and the Museum of Estonians Abroad are asking for help from all of those who have participated in ESTOs.

The museums are interested in memories as well as photos, films, advertisements, programs, souvenirs, letters sent home or to friends, postcards and other material.

A questionnaire to help in writing down memories is available on the websites of the Estonian National Museum and the Museum of Estonians Abroad.

The museums also welcome all other memories and impressions about the ESTOs. The memories may be in either Estonian or English.

Materials sent to Estonian National Museum will stay in its collections, so the researchers can use them later. The museum has also collected compatriots’ memories on the topic of “Fleeing the Homeland. The First Decade in Exile”, “Estonians Abroad 1955-2000”, “Trips to Soviet Estonia” and “Letters from Far Away”.
