      Immonen, Ingrid B (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2017)
      Historien om de finske flyktningene i Norge under vinterkrigen i Finland er lite omtalt, både i Finland og i Norge. Noe av deres historie har jeg funnet i arkiv, historisk litteratur, Olav Beddaris fremstillinger og Petsamo- Seuras publikasjoner. En viktig kilde har vært samtaler med familiemedlemmer til de evakuerte og noen av de som opplevde evakueringen som barn.

Den fikk en veldig spredning på Facebook og flere organisasjoner sine hjemmesider. Fikk tilbakemeldingen at den var blant det viktigste som var skrevet.
