Stalin killed almost all of the Murman Finnish concentration camps – the people of the region the stories come at last to the public

Finns died in stalin's repressions in the 1930s almost as much as the winter war, but the topic is not to do more extensive research.

Helsingin sanomat journalist Unto Hämäläinen the proposal in early autumn, that the finns the fate of stalin's persecutions made the Finnish-Russian joint research (switch to another service). Also the president of the Republic Sauli Niinistö and prime minister Antti Rinne admit that it's time to figure out (go to another service), all Finnish event in the Soviet union.

Ikitie-film illuminate a wider audience, the Karelian-Finnish harsh fate. And now the northern Kola peninsula to the finns suffering is to make the first statement.

Almost all the Murman area residents were killed, so their story is left to tell. It is probably one of the reasons that my book is apparently the first description of the area the finns the fate of, say, a writer and doctoral researcher Tarja Lappalainen.

Young Sven Fatal survived, but 90 percent of the days the lake of the villagers died of hunger and disease. Tarja Lappalainen works tell Sven Lokan and the other survivors through the Murman area Finnish dark story.

Finns were very successful before the persecution

the Finns began to colonize the Murman area in the 1860s famine years as a result. The second wave of immigration came in the early 1900s, when His-Murmansk when attracted to the scene.

the civil war still as a result the finns came to the area more and in the early 1930s the Soviet union of america Finnish, but some were transferred to the Kola peninsula.

the Finnish success in the area very well. Different Finnish village had dozens of them. Ura-guba was the largest and the previously mentioned day lake significant village center.


– the Finns built their villages of handsome houses. They were so big, that the area of the russians begin to look at them kademielellä i.e. evil eye, but also looking up at, told the author Tarja Lappalainen.

the Murman area was 24 Finnish schools and public sentiments conveyed in two Finnish magazines.

the Finns and the saami co-existence working

the Sami people had lived in the area for hundreds of years. The finns and the saami were at least contemporaries of the reports according to the ladies. Tarja Lappalainen in the book are excerpts from the Tyyne Continent Sven Lokalle write the letters.

in These letters Tyyne Continent reported that the village inhabitants take care the lapp puppies and Uurassa would get along without them. Dogs the care they rewarded the villagers for example, the reindeer.

They were also wealthy. Women had so much to gold ring, that the fingers bend the. Well we they also feed us, and every house was heated with a sauna, where they were visiting, told Tyyne Continent in the letter.

Murman Finnish long and black night

the Repression of the finns began in 1937. NKVD (internal affairs people's commissariat, later ministry of interior) officials seek people from their homes night and day. The three-person troika sentenced and the sentences were usually severe.

– we Read the Murman area in the March magazine, that at one time were executed in 25 Finnish. Many of them were communist party people and the best eturvin workmen, recalled Sven Fatal in Arkhangelsk in 1989.

the Survivors of the finns were forcibly deported in 1940 Karelia and part of the Altai mountains in the back. The second world war started and the Murman finns were exported from Karelia Arkhangelsk forests the forests to concentration camps.

– There was also a day of lake village residents, where camp died of 90 per cent, Tarja Lappalainen.

the mother either did not recognize: "no, you're Not my son." An old scar, however, save and Sven head back to the relatives house.

the right of the Murman finns

the Writer, doctoral researcher Tarja Lappalainen told reporters that he was interviewed by Murman Finnish at the same time, when you do book Halibut Finnish.

– my first Thought was to take the book to their own section of the Murman Finnish, but pretty quickly realized that their destiny requires your own research and book.

Finns died in purges according to some estimates, about 20 000, i.e. the same amount as in the winter war. As the Helsingin sanomat journalist Unto Hämäläinen suggested that the persecution made a more detailed study, also Tarja Lappalainen write the same petition.

It's what I have written Murman finns is only preliminary. This is still much more to explore. I would like to, that Murman Finnish mass destruction should be all of human consciousness and would provide eventually them justice.
