„The Story of the Baltic University“ Presented at EstDocs Film Festival in Toronto, Oct. 16-20, 2015

„The Story of the Baltic University“ is a documentary film about 170 Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian academics starting up a university in a displaced persons camp in bombed-out Hamburg. Although the Baltic University lasted only three years from 1946 to 1949 it was a most successful and promising example of international cooperation. „The Story of the Baltic University“ will have its World Premiere at EstDocs Film Festival in Toronto Oct. 16-20.

After working as a journalist for Dutch and Belguim newspapers and national radio, Helga Merits began making historical documentary films. Her previous film, The Class of 1943 – remember us when we are gone (2012) featured the fate of five Estonian boys of the Tartu Boys Gymnasium forced to join the German army. „The Story of The Baltic University“ is her fourth documentary.
