Reports from the Winter War 1978/1979

Reports from the Winter War on Lolland and Falster 1978/1979 are wanted

The Lolland Libraries are looking for stories and pictures from the Winter War on Lolland and Falster in 1978/79 for a new book publication.

When we on Lolland and Falster talk about the Winter War, it is not the Russo-Finnish war in 1939 that we think of first and foremost, but rather the snowstorm that hit our region in the winter of 1978/79. It was a centenary event that has not been seen before or since, and everyone who lived here at the time will be able to remember it. New generations and newcomers, on the other hand, may have a hard time imagining the consequences of the heavy snowfall.

At Nakskov Local History Archive, you often get inquiries about the Winter War. Here, the snowstorm is primarily documented in the image archive, but they miss some personal narrative. They have also thought that it might be helpful if they could refer to a book with both pictures and stories from the Winter War in some of the inquiries. In book form, there is already "The Winter War on Lolland-Falster", which Folketidende published immediately after the snowstorm in 1979, but it is primarily a picture report and only with the newspaper's own pictures. Many others have certainly taken good pictures in their immediate area, and many will be able to tell about fun experiences, challenges and difficulties with the snow masses, all of which could be exciting to collect and preserve for posterity.

In recent years, the Lolland Libraries have published a number of books based on memoirs. Nakskov Lokalhistoriske Arkiv therefore contacted us and presented their idea of ​​publishing a book about the Winter War. We immediately agreed to it, and we are also happy to help the archives get the Winter War sufficiently documented in the form of memories as well as photos and live images, if any should be included.

Snow removal during the Winter War 1978/79

Tell us about your experiences during the Winter War
One must have reached a certain age to be able to remember the winter of 1978/79. It is, after all, forty-three years ago. But if you lived on Lolland or Falster at the time, the amounts of snow were so extreme that you hardly confuse your experiences from that winter with experiences during earlier or later winters. Should there be some who remember a particularly exciting or dramatic event, we would like to focus on it in the book, for example. by contacting others who were involved in the incident to get more angles on the story.

The collection of stories from the Winter War takes place in close collaboration with all the local history archives on Lolland and Falster, who will partly contribute with the story that is already in their collection, and partly they will ensure that all stories and pictures are preserved for posterity.
Contributions must be sent no later than 1 September 2022 to librarian Alfred Christensen either by email to or to LollandBibliotekerne, Søvej 8, 4900 Nakskov.
