The Student Society Raimla was established in 1922 in Estonia. The activity of the organization was interrupted by World War II, and the Raimla, like other student organizations, was disbanded by the communist regime. By the time the war ended, many of the members of the Society had fled Estonia, and the organization could continue its existence in exile with many chapters in different countries.
