Map of annexed South Karelia and Lake Laatokka (Ladoga) where Antti
Joronen served during the Continuation War (1941 -1944) WW2 between Finland and
Russia (and its Allies). The location of Rahmasaari battle in which Antti
participated, is marked with a square, just north of Käkisalmi. Parts of
Northern Karelia were also annexed. The underlined place-names are the ancestral
homes of the writer, which the Russians refer to as liberated lands. World opinion is that Karelia should never have been handed over to the Soviet Union and it should be given back. There has been terrible deterioration of everything that the Karelians cherished and defended for hundreds of years.
Karjalan kartassa näkyy paikkakunnat joissa Jorosten
suku sijaitsi ennen Karjalan luovutusta. Laatokalla näkyy ruutu jossa
Rahmansaaren taistelu tapahtui. Lisää tietoja taistelusta löytyy Antti Jorosen
1941 Jatkosota saitista.
