A Shattered Life. Espoo in the Finnish Civil War

The Espoo City Museum’s exhibition in KAMU, at The WeeGee Exhibition Centre tells about the fates of the people from Espoo during the Civil War. Such current phenomena as divided nations and hate speech, were not unheard of a hundred years ago. How does political turmoil preceding the Civil War show in Espoo? What happened in Espoo during the War? A Shattered Life – Espoo in the Finnish Civil War - exhibition takes the visitor to events that happened a hundred years ago. The focus of the exhibition is on contemporary accounts and stories, which shed light on the experiences of both Reds and Whites. They also show that life is always more nuanced than one would think when looking from a distance.
