A “Gallery of Memory” installation dedicated to 974 Jews killed in Estonia during the Holocaust was opened at the Jewish Center in Tallinn, Estonia on January 27, the date that marks International Holocaust Remembrance Day. “The gallery consists of niches in which glass pieces are placed bearing the names of all the Jews we know to have been killed in Estonia up until January 20, 1942,” said the center’s executive director Vadim Ryvlin, referring to the time of the Wannsee Conference in Berlin in which Estonia was declared “Judenfrei.” “Perpetuating the names of these people was our goal.”
