In Helsinki and Turku today, people left flowers and candles to remember two anniversaries.
At Helsinki’s Central Railway Station, well-wishers placed candles on the ground in memory of 28-year-old Jimi Joonas Karttunen.
Kartunen died on 16th September 2016, a week after being injured in an apparent confrontation with members of the neo-Nazi Finnish Resistance Movement, at a gathering outside the station.
The suspect, Jesse Eppu Oskari Torniainen was convicted of assault over Kerttunen’s death.
Meanwhile in Turku, a ceremony to cast one thousand flowers onto the River Aura took place on Sunday afternoon, as part of the Turku Day events.
The memorial comes almost one month after a knife attack in the city centre on 18th August, which left two women dead and eight other people injured. Police are investigating the stabbings as a terror attack.
