Kalevala: the Finnish national epic ~ The first edition of the Kalevala appeared in 1835, compiled and edited by Elias Lönnrot on the basis of the epic folk poems he had collected in Finland and Karelia. This poetic song tradition, sung in an unusual, archaic trochaic tetrametre, had been part of the oral tradition among speakers of Balto-Finnic languages for 2,000 years.

In the Winter War Finland stood alone; other countries offered only sympathy and modest assistance. Finnish ski troops inflicted heavy casualties on the Russian army. Finland's survival against overwhelming Russian forces became legendary all over the world. (not my caption)

During the Second World War, some 70,000 to 80,000 Finnish children were sent from Finland mainly to Sweden and Denmark to avoid the fighting and the bombing. A total of 40,000 to 70,000 children lost one or both parents, but no one knows for sure exactly how many children were evacuated. In retrospect, the evacuation has been considered psychologically flawed, as the separations turned out to inflict a far greater damage on the evacuees than the damage suffered by those children.
