Suomen Silta 6/05 has an article about the book "Evakkolapset (Evacuee Children)" published by Gummerus, a collection of stories compiled by Anne Kuorsalo and Iris Saloranta. The book is about the experiences of evacuee children who fled Karelia. Of the 400,000 people who fled Karelia, an unknown number were children. The authors said people need to read history to ensure that cities and towns like Viipuri, Kurkijoki, Uusikirkko and Valkeasaari and others that were once part of Finland and were ceded to Russia after the war won't be forgotten.
