There were two waves of the Finnish prisoners of war in the Soviet Union during the World War II: POWs during the Winter War and the Continuation War.Before the Winter War (1939-1940), the Soviet Union established the main camp for Finnish POW within the former monastery near Gryazovets in Vologda Oblast, Russia. NKVD planned for many POWs in the war and planned nine camps to handle about 25,000 men, however during the whole Winter War there were about 900 Finnish POWs, about 600 of which were placed in the Gryazivets camp. A total of 838 Finnish POWs were returned to Finland. The last party of Finns left Russia on April 20, 1940.show more
