    With the rude intrusion of the Russian Revolution that Oskar (or Oscar) and all Estonians had to suffer the future became ever more uncertain. Russification had been increasing in the previous three decades and the Estonians had adjusted, but with the advent of the Revolution it was no longer just an evolution. The free press was shut down. The Communists of Lenin wanted to annex Estonia completely, evidently not factoring into their decision just how fiercely Estonians view their independence.…

    Depression, Oscar started to develop severe headaches in 1935. Initially, no one seemed to be able to find a reason for them and unfortunately for Oscar, the condition persisted and started to get progressively worse. Despite his health, Oscar and Hilda were building up their savings. One consequence of this was that they could afford to take in Oscar’s daughter Vaike (or Vicky).

This regime had strict rules, closed borders and no one was allowed to travel outside the USSR. Also, we did not have any religious freedom or freedom of speech.

    Since the end of the colonial age, European and American customs, practices, political ideas, and cuisines have steadily drifted apart.

    This quote, “It is my great desire to reform my subjects, and yet I am ashamed to confess that I am unable to reform myself,” from Peter the Great, shows the sophistication he possessed, and also reflects the attention that he gave to Russia in order to reform it into a better society. Obviously, since he was called Peter “the Great,” he must have influenced history.
