    Background: Arriving at Stockholm airport from Helsinki, an Esthonian girl of 15 rejoins her family after 13 years behind the iron curtain. Her name is Maret and her father Remi Milk was a pilot with the Esthonian air force who escaped with his plane to Sweden in 1944. His family went to Mecklenburg in Germany, and when this city was captured by Russian troops in 1945, Mrs. Milk was separated from her daughter when she, too, went to Sweden. In 1956, however, the Milks got word that the daughter and Mrs. Milk's mother were alive in Tallin and since then they have been petitioning the Russian authorities for permission for their daughter to cross the iron curtain. Permission was finally granted on December 18 last year and now, at last, the family is re-united.
