Finnish civilians rescue a woman from a bombed building during the first day of Soviet military actions taken against the Finnish capital of the Finnish-Soviet Winter War. The Winter war began with Soviet invasion of Finland on 30 Nov 1939 (3 months after the outbreak of the war in Europe), and ended with the Moscow Peace treaty on 13 Mar 1940. It would soon be followed by the Continuation War between the two nations from 25 June 1941 to 19 Sept 1944. Helsinki, Uusimaa, Finland. 30 Nov 1939.
