Hertta Kuusinen - FINLAND
This oficial card came from Finland and was sent by Sari-Anne that picked for me a photo of the famous Finnish polititian Hertta Kuusinen during a speech in 1948. I've always been interested in history and politics, but I confess I've never read anything from or about Hertta Kuusinen (going to search a bit right now). Thank you very much Sari for your card and the nice words. This postcard took 9 days to arrive!
Hertta Elina Kuusinen (Luhanka 1904 – Moscow 1974) was a Finnish Communist politician. She was a member of the central committee and the political bureau of the Communist Party of Finland and member of Finland's parliament, the Eduskunta (1945–1972). In 1948, Kuusinen became only the second woman to serve as a Finnish cabinet minister. She was the daughter of Soviet politician and one-time Finnish communist leader Otto Ville Kuusinen.
