- Säkkijärven mies pyysi yösijaa kulkiessaan
Keski-Suomessa. Isäntä kyseli miehen kotipaikkaa ja sen kuultuaan
- -"No, en tiedä, olen kuulut että kolmesta
säkkijärveläisestä on kaksi soittajaa ja yksi varas."
- -"Älkää sitä pelätkö isäntä hyvä, mie oon toine niist
soittajist," vakuutti säkkijärveläinen - ja sai yösijan.
- A man from Säkkijärvi, a displaced Karelian travelling in central
Finland, stopped to ask for lodging for the night. The man of the house asked
where his home village is, and upon hearing that said: -"Well, I don't know, I've
heard that every third person in Säkkijärvi is a thief, the other two are
- -"Oh, you don't have to worry about that, I'm one of the musicians", said
the Säkkijärivian - and got the lodging.
- The Evacuation of Karelia
- The evacuation of Karelia was a great crime against humanity. Churchill
and Roosevelt could have stopped it, but did not do so. Where was Churchill the
defender of justice? Roosevelt, the defender of freedom? This resulted in not
only the sanctioned displacement of the Karelian people for no valid reason
except Stalin wanted Karelia, but the destruction of a rare and rich culture as
well. United States and Britain had an opportunity to save a whole culture, but
chose to let it die. They want to believe they did the right thing in Europe during and after the war. But many costly mistakes were made, at the expense of the lives of innocent people. Millions moved out of Eastern Europe, and millions were forcibly sent back, to certain destruction in Stalin's death camps. The primary goal of the allies was the destruction of Hitler, at the expense of justice for all. The United States and Britain owes it to the Karelian people to help secure the return of stolen land, cities, homes, farms, businesses etc. Other countries have similar complaints, such as Mongolia. Karelians want what's fair: their land back plus assistance for the Russians to resettle elsewhere. Russia is a large country, they can afford to give back what they took illegally. There would probably be great economic benefits for both sides I don't think an honest Russian would be offended if the rightful owner wanted his home back. Suppose someone killed the owner of a house and moved his family in. Would it be right to ask him to leave dispite having raised his family there? Where would they move to?
