The Finnish civil war in 1918 was also a children's war, with child soldiers on both sides. Children saw and experienced a lot, fought in battles, were wounded and executed also. But children also played on the ruins of the war and believed in their future. Reflections of Children in War is based on authentic photographs, and they speak for themselves. Each child, White and Red alike, is a victim of war.
