In May 2016, 12 young people from Gotland and the Baltic States participated in an art project that followed the tens of thousands of people who fled the Baltic during the Second World War. Follow the participant’s experiences and thoughts about migration in Sandra Fröberg’s documentation of the project.

Also, meet Helmi Warg, whose father Hans Suur rowed from Saaremaa to Fårö Ascension Day in 1944. Suur then went back and retrieved Helmi 9 years old and the rest of the family. When Helmi returns to Gotland many years later, she finds her father’s boat at Kovik’s fishing museum.


The project was funded by the Swedish Institute
