E667 on June 16, 2011

Hi Dmitriy,

My mother was born in Sortavala but left before it was "liberated" by the Red Army. There were many Russian visitors in Munich. Is there a special reason for Russians to visit Munich (I admit the beer is excellent)? I'll have to teach you some Finnish: terveisin is not my name but means Greetings (Parhain terveisin = Best wishes), the real name is Erik.

S ogromnym privetom!

believe me or not but my grandfather is from Sortavala too!!!! I was there once, about ten years ago.. well I don't know what is the reason of so many russian visitors in Munich (I mentioned that too).. I hope it's not beer! Still the beer is really nice there) Well I don't know finnish lanhuage so I'm sorry for my misake) Nice to meet you, Erik!!! Parhain terveisin!

On second thought: my mother was born in Salmi on the border with the USSR, but spent most of her youth in Sortavala. Your grandfather might have met her.The Karelian diaspora resulted in me living in Holland and you in Moscow. Do you have any idea of how many Karelians choose to become a comrade in the USSR? An interesting site about Karelia is: http://heninen.net/russian.htm made by Antti Hänninen aka Andrew Heninen (russification of his name;he's from Petroskoj). Dasvidanja!

well I can't say that that I define myself as a member of Karelian nation or even more as a member of Karelian diaspora. I simply don't know language but I try to know something about the culture of Finland and Karelia. I can't say that people were able to decide whether to stay or move to Finland. Mostly I belive people didn't move from their native places.

Nor Do I. I'm Dutch, not Finnish or Karelian. The fact remains, that I wouldn't be in existence, living in Holland, if it hadn't been for the Winter War 1939-40. Let's call it a diaspora on a small scale.
