The The Broken Line Monument is built in memory of the people who lost their lives on the Estonian ferry that sank in 1994 between its journey from Tallinn to Stockholm. The ship sank with 757 people who were never found while 137 people were rescued just in time.
The monument signifies the loss with its abstract design of a metal curved line that breaks off mid way. Even though simple, the names of the victims on the monument still holds a strong message.
