February Meeting: Finnish National Winter War Memorial

Our February guest speaker, Christian Keil, told us about the forthcoming National Winter War Memorial entitled “Valon tuoja” (He who brings the light). The memorial, commemorating the 105-day Winter War in 1939-40, will be placed at Kasarmintori in Helsinki this year and dedicated by President Niinist√∂ on November 30. Mr. Keil also treated us to a slide show and interesting commentary about the numerous, smaller war memorials that already exist in Finland. ChristianKeilalone
