The first seminar day will take place in the Museum of Occupation and Freedom “Vabamu”. Vabamu educates and involves the people of Estonia and its visitors and encourages everyone to think about the recent past, to sense the fragility of freedom, and to stand for freedom and justice. This is the home for personal narratives about crimes against humanity. Stories like these help us better appreciate justice and freedom which has been becoming more and more important since 2022.

It is a modern and dynamic research university in Estonia with a leading role in promoting an intelligent lifestyle through education, research, and a unique collaboration across disciplines.
