11 September - 30 December 2010. Less than 100 years ago, Finland was in the grips of a bloody civil war - part of the turmoil caused by the first world war. The Finnish civil war was fought from 27 January to 15 May 1918 between the forces of the social democrats led by the People's Deputation of Finland, known as the reds, and the forces of the conservative-led senate, known as the whites.
The reds were supported by the Russian Soviet Republic while the Whites received military assistance from the German empire. Copenhagen's Worker's Museum presents an exhibition of photographs, artefacts and newspaper cuttings which sheds light on Finland's dark past.
