The high school of Kirkkonummi was built between the church and the railway station after the Soviet lease period. One day, as some boys were playing football on the yard, a man walked by and stopped, because he could not believe what he was seeing. He took the ball and brought it to the principal’s office.

- It all felt very strange, says Kaija Kangasniemi, who was principal in the school at the time.

The “ball” was a scull from the nearby graveyard, which the Soviets had dug up.
