Your other points are good, but the last sentence in this paragraph is not. The Estonians had waited for the restoration of their independence. When the Germans did nothing of the kind but treated Estonia as an occupied country, the Estonians were disappointed.
Ethnic Estonians may well have been disappointed that the expulsion of the Soviet occupiers by the German invasion in July 1941 did not result in the restoration of national independence.
Nevertheless, for the majority of ethnic Estonians, German rule was the lesser of two evils, and certainly preferable to the Stalinist tyranny that oppressed them for one year from July 1940 to July 1941, and again from mid-1944 at least until Stalin's death in 1953.
German National Socialist ideology regarded the Estonians, like the Finns, as a "Nordic" people of high racial value, and for that reason accorded them a high status in the racial hierarchy that it was proposed to establish in a German-dominated Europe. Ethnic Estonians were not persecuted by the German occupiers as a people; only the minority who actively supported a return of Soviet rule were repressed.
For the tiny Jewish population of Estonia, the situation was reversed. No matter how oppressive Stalinist rule was, for them it was the lesser of two evils, and infinitely preferable to German rule under which they were certain to victimised.
Given that background, it is easy to see why Estonians of today do not regard their compatriots who fought on the German side as collaborationist criminals, but rather as fighters against Soviet oppression. The position of Estonians who joined the German forces for the purpose of fighting against the Soviet Union is thus analogous to that of the members of British and United States forces who fought against Germany as allies of Stalin; in both cases they were fighting a common enemy, rather than for the ideology espoused by either of the two dictators.
It is also important to realise that Germany did not invade an independent Estonia and overthrow a legal government. The legal government of Estonia had been overthrown by the Soviet Union in 1940, and the country was under foreign occupation. The German invasion of Estonia in 1941 might therefore be compared to the Allied invasion of France in 1944.
This thread in my view does have a legitimate purpose, which is to assess the scope of German criminal acts in Estonia. However, the thread's title is misleading, since it suggests that the German occupiers treated the ethnic Estonian population very harshly, which is far from the case.
So far, all that has been shown is that some hundreds of ethnic Estonians were imprisoned and/or executed by German forces or by Estonian auxiliaries. To the extent that those persons had collaborated with the Soviet occupation, and had participated in the repression of their fellow countrymen, they were not entirely innocent victims. The actions against tham may be compared to the bloody purging of French collaborators with the German occupiers carried out by the Resistance in the summer and autumn of 1944.
To be sure, there is also the fate of the one thousand or so Jews who did not flee or were not evacuated from Estonia before the arrival of the German forces. But the scope of anti-Jewish atrocities there was minimal compared with what happened elsewhere in occupied Soviet territory.
In summary, the trace of German rule in Estonia was not particularly bloody at all, particularly not as regards the overwhelming majority of the population of that country.
