Is it an Estonian painting OF WW2 or an Estonian painting FROM WW2 when the Nazi forces were seen as liberators of Estonia from the Communist yoke?

Neither - it shows Estonian members of the Waffen SS, in which they enthusiastically enlisted. Many famous Nazi atrocities were committed by the "Estonian Legion" and the "Latvian Legion" - which were official SS Divisions.

When you hear about "Estonians being sent to Siberia" after the war, they forget to mention that they'd been Estonians who had served in the SS.
