1. Krypta Deutscher Soldatenfriedhof - German War Cemetery
The German Military Cemetery of Rovaniemi is located on lake Norvajärvi, in Finnish Lapland. It is the final resting place of 2,530 German soldiers who died in the Finnish regions of Lapland and Oulu during World War II. It was inaugurated on August 31, 1963 and is managed by the German War Graves Commission. The red granite structure houses a mausoleum as well as a bronze interpretation of the Pieta, depicting a mother holding her fallen son.
A Swedish torch is a source of heat and light from a vertically set tree trunk, incised and burning in the middle. It was invented by the Finns and it became known in Europe during the 1600s and is now used by forest workers, and for leisure activities. Due to its flat surface and good embers, it can also be used for cooking. Compared to a campfire, it is more compact, and therefore several small heat sources can be distributed over an area.
3. Jääkärikivi -muistomerkki
The Jäger Movement consisted of volunteers from Finland who trained in Germany as Jägers during World War I. Supported by Germany to enable the creation of a Finnish sovereign state, the movement was one of many means by which Germany intended to weaken Russia and to cause Russia's loss of its western provinces and dependencies.
