MEMORY DATA SOURCES

The Labour Memory Data Commission is working within our archives, collecting and storing memory and narrative data as well as serving memory data users. The memories and interviews included in the collection allow you to gain insight into individuals from the past, such as personal experiences of the labour community.

The Labour Memory Data Commission operates within the Labour Archives and collects memory and narrative data. The commission was founded in 1960 as a traditional group of the Työväen Sivistysliitto. It was founded by researchers, labour officers, an employer's representative and bank director Mauno Koivisto. The objective was to collect data about the 1918 Civil War and information on the spiritual traditions and culture of work that the official education and archiving establishment wasn't interested in receiving.

The narrative collection of the commission has been written from the point of view of worker solidarity; it includes many life stories and interviews with politically-active people. The collections allow you to examine the world-view of individuals in greater detail, seeing what they have experienced and learning about the Finnish labour community. The Labour Memory Data Commission seeks to collect for the memory data archive narrative data on the everyday life of normal people and the wielding of power.

The collection data core consists of approx. 10,000 memory data collections organised in memory data bindings, which are supplemented with other written material as an appendix folder. The biggest individual theme collection are the memories from 1917-1918 of 'the Red's' that were defeated in the Civil War. It is a unique description of the destiny of those who lost the war. The collections of the Labour Memory Data Commission can be freely used by everyone for research purposes.
