70 Years Ago Today 15/10/39

Estonia: The government signs a treaty to return Estonians of German origin to the Reich. This is clearly happening as part of the Nazi Soviet pact in which the Baltic states of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia were absorbed into the Soviet Union.

Finland: Compulsory national service is introduced in preparation for war with the Soviet Union which now seems inevitable.
