Colours of war – colour photographs of the Wi

Event details

The South Karelia Museum exhibition introduces rare colour photographs taken during the Second World War. Enlargements of genuine wartime colour photographs are an impressive way to show the diversity of life in the war years, both on the front and behind the lines. The colour photographs of the Winter War were discovered several decades after the end of the war. The photographer was found to be Carl-Erik Groth, a military medic from Sweden who was working for the Red Cross. The exhibition comprises photographs from the Finnish Literature Society, private collections, the wartime photography archive of the Finnish Defence Forces and the Red Cross.
