Finland Plans To Rebury War Dead

Posted on January 25, 2018

The grave site at Heinola – 140 km (87 miles) north of the capital Helsinki – is currently in the middle of an industrial park with a stone marker showing its general location, national broadcaster Yle reports. Now, plans proposed by the city government and one of the companies in the industrial park hope to identify the 300 communist fighters in the grave and bury them in individual coffins in one of three local cemeteries. However, that task may be difficult, and certainly won’t be cheap, with samples of each body being sent for DNA testing.
