In this presentation, Merilin Piipuu will examine Estonian public media discussions surrounding the Museum of Occupations’ plan to refocus its permanent exhibit and rename the institution as the Museum of Freedom. She also will analyze the reception of the museum’s initiative to show a temporary exhibit about gay history in the Soviet Union. Piipuu will situate these initiatives in the historical context of Estonia and other former Soviet Union countries as well as in the memories of different generations and marginalized groups in Estonia, asking how these latter fit into a narrative of suffering.
