Roje-Kuru with his sister Ritva.During World War II some 70,000 Finnish children were evacuated from Finland, chiefly to Sweden, but also to Norway and Denmark.Most were evacuated during the Continuation War to ease the situation for their parents who set out to rebuild their homes in the re-conquered Karelia returning from the evacuation of Finnish Karelia. The first surge of evacuees arrived, however, during the Winter War when the Finns had reasons to fear a humanitarian catastrophe following the expected Soviet occupation.Photo taken: 1942people, children, girl, baby, together, looking, smiling, sisters, love, lifting up, 1942 This photograph originates from the International Magazine Services photo archive.
