Mis teha, siin ta on : [pagulase elu piltides] = Refugee : [refugee life in pictures] by Arnold Sepp( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in Estonian and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For five years, Estonian bookkeeper Märt Murakas ("Osterbeiter") worked in a German munitions factory as a laborer to support himself and his family. When the Americans bombed the factory, Märt and the other laborers cheered, but then they were assigned to work at another munitions factory. Finally the Americans rolled in and the factories closed. After a short time, a car marked UNRRA rolled into the neighborhood. People in uniforms told the refugees about the advantages of living in a DP camp, where there would be food, shelter, and a safe place to live with help to create a new life. Mostly, that was true except when it wasn't. But classes were organized; shops were opened; letters were written. Balanced with a strong sense of irony and dark humor, the residents of the camp began to look for new places to live while listening to the voices on the radio that reported in the open prairie or the wild jungle, there was no place where the DP was wanted
Carrying Linda's stones : an anthology of Estonian women's life stories by Suzanne Stiver Lie( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication contains the life stories of fifteen Estonian women whose lives were turned upside down in the conflagration of World War II and its aftermath. Caught in the hegemonic struggle of Germany and the Soviet Union, these women managed to survive and record their experiences in spite of the break-up of their families, deportation, incarceration, and years of deprivation and hardship. The editors provide the historical and cultural context in which these stories may be understood. The stories are analysed from sociological and gender theoretical perspectives
