Join us for our monthly meeting at 2pm on Saturday, June 11th.


At the conclusion of the monthly meeting there will be a special showing of The Story of the Baltic University. The journalist and documentary maker, Helga Merits, describes why she chose this story: The film shows the hope, courage and determination of staff and students, but also what can be achieved, even in most difficult circumstances, with different nationalities, who speak different languages and have a different background, if there is a common goal. I do think the story of the Baltic University is a story we all can learn from. What was achieved within three months was spectacular: a functioning university with eight faculties with 17 departments. In March 1946 the Baltic University opened it's doors. The British Military Government was in favour of a university for displaced persons and so were the first UNRRA representatives. 

The film premiered on the 18th of October 2015, Toronto Estdocs festival.
