Patarei comes to life – War Museum Tallin

Patarei comes to life is a documentary that was commissioned by the Estonian War Museum. It tells the eventful history of the Patarei prison in Tallinn. The documentary also shows how the prison was restored. The building was originally built as a fortress in the 1800s. Depending on who was in power, the walls have imprisoned criminals, political prisoners and persecuted Jews.

Patarei is a unique part of European history and nowadays a very popular tourist attraction. Estonians themselves value this monument greatly and are ready to spare no effort when it comes to its restoration.
