map Location

Vabadussõjas langenud saarlaste monument
The monument opposite the County Government Building is dedicated to commemorate the islanders who lost their lives in the battles of the Estonian War of Independence (1918 - 1920). The famous Estonian sculptor, Amandus Adamson, has depicted a wounded soldier leaning on a rock. On the back side of the monument, there are bronze plaques with 160 names of the fallen. The monument was demolished by the Soviet Army on the 18th of June 1940, and was restored and erected in this location in the autumn of 1942. In the spring of 1945, the monument was once again destroyed by the Soviets. It was restored in 1990, and on July 23, Victory Day, it was rededicated. The sculptor is Mati Varik.
