Syvärannan Lottamuseo -- _DSC4824.jpg

Elisabeth Carlberg was eight years old when she joined the young Lottas during the Finnish Continuation War. Based on the Interim Peace pact, the Lotta Svärd organisation was suspended in 1944. Today, Elisabeth Rehn is a wearer of the dress and the first representative of the state to start breaking the silence around the organisation.
