"Help Finnish Child. Send your grant to Norden Society".
Norden Society was one of the first organizations in Scandinavia which was
organizating relief funds and material aid for Finland.

Nameless poster about the horrors of bombings.

"You belong to home front.
Suppress each rumour-gossip-report"


Image


"Traitor´s reward is death"

"Air Raid Precautions poster. Poster´s aim was to remind people that here was always possibility for gas attack by enemy."

Air Victories. Great air victories by small and weakly equipped Finnish Air Forces was good source of inspiration for many artists


Image



Herbert Hoover, Finland´s support:
"Listen now, how you think that we get money collected for You, if you don´t soon
lose some battles?"
(In other side is Finland´s President Kyösti Kallio listening).
In USA some people were doubtful and bit worrying about news that Finns
destroyed Soviet Divisions after each other. "Does these people really some
help if they can beat Soviets so easily" was surely in mind of some people.

Helsinki, capital of Finland, was selected few years earlier as place for year 1940
Summer Olympic games. In picture printed advertisement poster.

offensive name used in Finland for Russian)

I am finnish also as the Kormy is. I dont have any posters or graffiti posted here but i want to comment mr Kormy's pictures. As I may suspect Kormy is upset about the winter war and it's resolution. I cannot say anything but "Finland had it coming" I mean that winter war was finland's own fault. (this is gonna upset some one of my own country men but the ones who are really aware of the winter war do understand it)

Care to tell me why?

Why was it Finlands fault? Care to explain.

Note, Kormy: "tsuhnas" (I guess you meant "chuhoncy'") was a name for Estonians in the XVIII century and it wasn't offensive as it isn't now, our poet Pushkin also used it without hesitation. We don't even seem to have offensive name for your countrymen, only "hot Finnish guys" in the anecdotes...

Yes, can you please explain Stahanov? I was under the impression that the Soviets were largely responsible, and that their desire to exchange territories around Leningrad were unjustifiable. This is particularly interesting as you yourself are Finnish.

You have to check the "Attach Signature" box under the thing where you're typing your post. You can switch it so it's on permanently somewhere in the profile.

Anyway, I don't know much about the Winter War, nor do I like your nazi sympathies, but I have to admit, there are some nice posters among them, some of them really depict how resillient the much weaker Finns were. I'm just curious about one thing; did Finnish airplanes really have swastikas on them?

The translations from Norwegian were terrible.

The first poster would be better translated as:
Help Finnish Children. Contribute the 'Northern Union'

The problem with the second Norwegian poster was that it should read:
Our brothers in need
Central Committee for Finland's Help
