Kitee war history


 

The battles of Continuation War were fought in the summer of 1941 in the direction of Kitee. The 19th division which was assembled in South Ostrobothnia suffered heavy losses while making a path for the main attack forces to Ladoga Karelia. Over 500 Finnish soldiers who died in the battles were temporarily buried in the churchyard. One of the memorials of these battles is located at Mustalampi crossing, which is from where the battles started. Second one is at Kitee’s churchyard, where the temporary graveyard was located.

The most famous of Kitee’s battle locations are the Kumuri’s hills which are nowadays Russian territory, but it can be seen from the Finland’s side of the border.
