He describes the memorial as three flagstaffs, three crosses, 16 signs with the names of the units which battled against the Red Army in 1944, and a cast-iron map of Estonia with the indication of the dates and places of battles.
The total cost of the memorial built on approval from the Tallinn Mayor Office and foreign veteran SS officers is 900,000 Kroons (about 60,000 euros). A memorial to Soviet soldiers who were killed when liberating Tallinn in 1944 is sited merely some 50 meters away from the new monument.
