    It's very confusing as it doesn't seem to be written in Russian.

    I doubt it is written in Russian, if it was, it'd be Орлов. Perhaps it might be written Latvian, Lithuanian or Estonian as they don't use Cyrillic?

    For me it seems to be "Nik. Orlov" - Nikolai Orlov. In many cases faith of ex-POW-s was sad. Many of them were sent to Siberia.

    Very haunting portrait Jan, but it's a nice thought provoking piece.

    My grandfather Sergei Kravchenko was in one of those Scandinavian prisons in that time. And only want to say about his portraits that had gave some food from german soldiers to prisoners with he. I heard only that story and I happy that my grandfather wasn't imprisoned in Siberia later.

    If you will see something like that drawings - please write to me jurij.kravchenko@gmail.com

    I think it was written the way it was because it was given to Finnish speaking people.

    Best, Jan
