It is time now to make a sister-thread for the Estonia before WW2 thread.:D A few old pictures from the post-war Estonia.

A Stalinistic propaganda photo: collective farmers are transporting some corn to govermnent, August 1949, Western-Estonia.

But photos like these were never published in Soviet Estonian magazines or newspapers: forest brothers.The guerrilla war of the forest brothers lasted until mid-1950s.

Estonians call them khrushchyovkas (hruštšovkad) [/URL], named after Nikita Khrushchyov. [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khrushchyovka (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khrushchyovka). Btw, in fact this term in not so exact because Khrushchyovkas in Estonia look different than elsewhere in former USSR, their design is more Estonianlike. Maybe we should call them "käbinovkas" after the long time (1950-1978) party leader of Soviet Estonia Johannes Käbin?;)http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ru/1/17/Kabin.jpg

Rather unsurprisingly, I had the same chairs and table in my last flat in Moscow. Ah, the ностальгия! :thumb001::p

All honor to the Forest Brothers and the rest of Estonia, who fought the Bolsheviks for as long as they did.

I´d like to continue this thread about genre painting of Estonian history.
I found a Soviet time documentary about a state farmhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sovkhoz in South-East Estonian uplands.
Well, it may be boring,it is also pretty long :D:zzz but the watching of it is not compulsary:)
The film is made to celebrate this state farm´s 25th anniversary in December 1983. It is in Estonian only, but the text isn´t (very) informative.But reflects so very well the life, Soviet Estonia-style conjuncture, houses, clothing, interior, people etc etc.Everything is so very typical...
For me it is nostalgic because resembles me so very much my childhood´s conjuncture in an other collective farm village where I grew up.
