During the second world war, more than 30 000 people fled across the Baltic sea to escape German and Soviet occupation. They fled from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in different kinds of boats. The exhibition Fleeing the Baltics focuses on the before and after of the escape across the Baltic sea. Those who can tell us today about the break-up and escape were children during the war. Their memories and objects are the starting point for the exhibition.
