Have you heard?


A Finnish visitor’s story:

I lived at a farm, where there were animals of all kind. Our house and the yard were big, so this is where all the children in the village gathered to play. During the war we had a Soviet prisoner of war who helped my parents on the farm and in his free time he played with us kids. One day as we were outside playing the prisoner started to run fast towards the forest. We got worried as we thought the prisoner was going to run away! But all of a sudden he turned as he was running and yelled: Baaaah!We realized that he was on his way to get the sheep that was grazing on the edge of the wood. And in a moment he was back with the sheep on a rope.

Have your say...

Where did the statues end up?

In 1956 as the Finnish people returned to the leased area of Porkkala an impressive triumphal arc was the first thing they saw on the railway station in Kirkkonummi. Most of them were torn down right away, except for the one in Pikkala, which can still today be found in the forest.

Inside the railway station two statues were left there by the Soviets. They depicted Lenin and Stalin. The statues disappeared quite fast – but the pedestals stood there for quite a long time. What happened to the statues? Where were they moved? If you know something – please tell us!
