About this event

Los Angeles Private Screening of “It's only now we begin”

The Baltic States of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania each suffered the tragedy of a Soviet invasion in 1940, a Nazi conquest in 1941 and a repeat invasion by the Soviets in 1944 – this time our conquerors stayed for 50 years. When the Soviets first invaded, they were welcomed by some, who worked with the Communists to establish Soviet control. When the Germans came, NKVD and Nazi files verify that a different set of quislings volunteered to help the Nazis.

Each country’s experience was different but we also shared commonalities. There are lessons to be learned by all three Baltic countries, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. This film explores one aspect of this dark period in Baltic history.

Special invitation, private only event for the Baltic Communities in Los Angeles, and for members of the Los Angeles Consular Corps, City, State and Federal Government officials.

A not to be missed historical presentation of Baltic history.

A Question and Answer session will follow.
