Site of the death of Bobi Sivén

At the end of summer 1942, in Repola Village, on the ruins of the building of municipality, under the guidance of Captain Ilmari Takkinen was erected a temporary monument at the site of the death of Bobi Sivén.

The monument was built in one day from cobblestones on a mixture of cement, lime and sand. Plaque was made by straightening and polishing an old cannon shell, on which was engraved the text “Site of the death of Bobi Sivén”.

On the same day was also carried out construction works on the ruins of Orthodox Church, on the grave of the national hero Paavo Höttönen.
