"Return to Geislingen"at 3PM
A film by John Ulo Kuhi and John Saarmann. In 2006 John Uno returned to the DP camp Geislingen to locate his home (1945 to 1949) and the homes of many Estonians he had met in Lakewood, NJ.

“Coming home soon” by Helga Merits

What does it mean when you, as a child, suddenly have to leave your home because your country is in a war and your family is in danger ?  What does it mean when you have to leave your loved ones, everything and everyone you knew behind?
This is the story told in the documentary Coming home soon. It is the story of Estonian children who fled Estonia in 1944 with their mothers, siblings and sometimes with their fathers as well.
They didn’t know where the dangerous roads would take them, and when they made it to the refugee camps, they knew, this was temporary.
All interviewees in this film found themselves in Geislingen refugee camp (1945-1950) in the South of Germany. Geislingen was an Estonian Assembly centre where some 4000 Estonians lived for more than 5 years. The camp became a small Estonia with schools, workshops, post office, hospital, newspaper, theatre, orchestra, choirs… Estonians themselves were in charge of organizing the camp. According to the UNRRA officer (the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration) of the Geislingen camp the Estonians did all the work while they did not have any say regarding the longevity or future of the camp. Geislingen was a home for the refugees 5 years and then the residents had to depart once more leaving their friends and familiar surroundings behind to start all over again in a new country, in a new place unknown to them.
The film Coming home soon explores the influence which the experiences at Geislingen had on the lives of the Estonian refugees and their children.
It is a story about how to cope with extremely difficult circumstances, how to overcome your past and build a successful future. It is a story of hope and inspiration.
Although this film is related to Estonian post WWII history, one can observe strong parallels to the current refugee situation in Europe. (http://geislingen.estdocs.com/)
