The Baltic Video Archive Baltic video testimonies at Stanford Libraries

Home

The Baltic Video Archive of Stanford Libraries consists of four oral history collections, each of which tells the story of the Baltic countries through video testimonies of the Baltic peoples. The testimonies touch on the Second World War in the Baltic region, the Nazi and Soviet occupations and repressions as well as the story of Baltic refugees.

The archive also includes stories told by the more recent generation, the so-called “digital nomads,” or the “Estonian mafia,” who have migrated to and established enterprises in California's Silicon Valley.

The testimonies in this archive thus reflect on the past, present, and the future of the Baltic states.
