The Tampere 1918 exhibition depicts the events that took place in Tampere in the spring of 1918
The Finnish Civil War between the Red and the White Guards was a short, but traumatic and sorrowful period in Finnish history.
Almost 40,000 people were killed in an internal crisis which lasted only four months. The biggest inland battle in Northern Europe prior to World War II took place in Tampere in April 1918.
The Tampere 1918 -exhibition approaches this difficult topic by shedding light on the chain of events and the viewpoints of different parties of the war.
