Lithuanians, Latvians and Estonians did commemorate together in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 12, 2016. However, it was noticed that someone or some group with hacking experience tried to block postings of the event announcement on the Los Angeles Estonian Community Facebook page. We don't know if the same thing happened for the Latvian and Lithuanian side.

The official commemoration took place at Tartu College on the 14th. The official community newspaper had coverage here

For a long long time, all three communities held a church service together, alternating between the community's churches, commemorating the June deportations. In the past couple of years, no mention of these church services has been made, prior to the service, in our estonian media. And only 1-2 Estonians then attended. Now, it seems that the Estonians have decided to do their own thing inTartu College. Why do they not want to commemorate such a horrid period in a church any more?

Uus EKN Kolka juhtimisel taob tahtlikult või tahtmatult kiilu Balti rahvaste ühtsusesse.

Imelik, TC's just märgati kuidas Eestlased on just nii palju koostööd uuesti alustanud Balti naabritega. Imelik ja kahju kuidas siin EWRis proovitakse lõhustada kogukonda kogu aeg suure entusiasmiga.

Kurb,aga tõsi. Fakt jääb faktiks, EWR-iga võii ilma,,eestlasi mälestusteenistusel ei osalenud ega viibinud.Teadaolevalt esimest korda endiste pagulasrahvaste poolt peetavate mälestusteenistuste ajaloos.

Miks EWR ei ilmuta artikkli Tartu Collegi mälestusest? Tartu Collegis räägiti just kui hästi Eesti, Läti ja Leedu kogukonna esindajad koostööd teevad, et aastaid ei ole nii hea koostöö olukord olnud.

Editors, Estonian World Review,

Thank you for publishing photographs from our Deportation Day Prayer service. I am very happy to have these to share with my community.

The article contains a number of inaccuracies which I feel need to be pointed out which leave an impression that does not reflect the circumstances. I would be grateful if your posting would be amended to reflect these.

The service took place on Wednesday, June 15, not June 14. Msgr. Edmond Putrimas and I chose that date so as not to conflict with the Baltic Federation event to be held on June 14.

The decision to organize the prayer service was spontaneous, and happened during the previous weekend while I was in Michigan, and Msgr Putrimas was in New York. Sadly I was unable to reach my Estonian colleagues to connect with them. However, Rev Kalle Kadekas, who was in Estonia at this time, sent his blessings, in Latvian (!). Rev Mart Salumae was unfortunately unable to attend as he had a prior arrangement at the Estonian Seniors’ Home to mark Deportation Day. This was a very simple service: songs and chants, a couple of readings, a very brief reflection and some organ music.

We were very glad to have been able to set aside time to join as a community, uniting all three Baltic countries in prayer. We most certainly did not feel that the Estonian community had chosen not to come, rather, it was sad that there was so little lead-in time to share the information, with the National councils among others, and to have them be able to take an active part in the service.

We would like to thank the Franciscan fathers at Resurrection Parish for graciously hosting the prayer service. Rev. Mart Salumae has already offered the use of St Peter’s Estonian for next year. We also look forward to meeting with the Baltic Federation in the autumn to plan next year’s marking of this event.

Yours truly,

Rev. Ilze Kuplens-Ewart
Dean, Latvian Evangelical Lutheran Church Abroad, Canada Section.

Miks te traditsioonilisele mälestusteenistusele eelistasite küüditamiseteemalist snobismi T.kolledži keldris.
