Memorial to Revolution of 1905 in Tallinn

Pictures and text by Mark R. Hatlie

These pictures were taken on 27 June, 2006 near down town Tallinn. The memorial commemorates the events of the 1905 Revolution, when Estonia was part of the Russian Empire. The revolution was especially violent in the Baltic region. It has no text, only the year "1905," much like a similar memorial in Riga (no images available). It is located at the site where 80 demonstrators were killed by Russian troops in the Tallinn equivalent of the St. Petersburg "Bloody Sunday" incident.
