Battle of Määritsa was a battle in Estonia, which began on the night of 31 March 1946, involving members of the Forest Brothers and Soviet occupation forces.[1] Around ten Estonian fighters based at the Hindrik farmhouse were besieged by up to 300 Soviet soldiers. The battle lasted about seven hours before the farmhouse caught fire and the Soviets demanded that the rebels surrender. The fighters escaped from the farmhouse, continued fighting and were killed.
