Event description

Annually on the last Saturday of July in Estonia unofficially the Day of Remembrance of Estonian legionaries of the 20th Division of the Waffen SS troops is celebrated. On this day in July '44 Estonian division near Sinemyayskih heights accepted a battle with the advancing Red Army units. This day is considered to be a birthday of the 20th Division. The event was attended by veterans of the Waffen SS, as well as their descendants. In modern history textbooks of Estonia is mentioned that legionaries who fought on Hitler's side had a hope to liberate their homeland from Bolshevism. However, Estonian officials do not participate in commemorative events. Worldwide Memorial Day in Sillamae is identified with the revival of Nazi values, unacceptable in a modern society.
