"Eesti Rand" memorial

"Eesti Rand" was one of the last ships carrying out deportation from Estonia to Russia in 1941. Vessel got bombed by Germans during air combat and was about to sink, yet captain managed to steer it to the coast of Prangli. This saved more than 2700 estonians from drowning and being deported (killed) in Russia. This memorial is to those who left their lives in the waves near Prangli.
