  • The Karjala Story: Revolution, War, WonderThursday, March 21, 7:00 pm

    St Michael's College, Father Madden Hall, 100 St Joseph St, Toronto

    Finnish Studies Program at University of Toronto & Canadian Friends of Finland (CFF) warmly welcome you to an evening with Finnish Studies

    The lecture discusses the history of Karjala (and Finland), from Kalevala Prehistory to the Continuation War and returning ”Home” to Karjala. It will weave historical facts with family lore, family memoirs, original manuscripts, military diaries, photos, and excerpts from classical as well as less known Finnish books.

    As Karjala was an integral part of Finland, the presentation is an outline of Finnish history; and as Karjala was the battleground between Finland and Russia it is a military history. It is also a cultural history looking at the epic and enchanting history of Karjala from a human perspective. The talk is based on the 5 years of research Tuira did for his book, “The Karjala Story: Revolution, War, Wonder” (2017).

    Everyone welcome! Reception with kahvi & pulla to follow.

    Please RSVP by March 19 via or phone: 416-926-1300, ext. 3337
