Everlasting summer. Everlasting youth. The utopia of the new human. The park forest of Aulanko has always been the place where you can see the prevailing ideas and styles. In 1938 functionalist Hotel Aulanko opened its doors. In the late summer of 1939, only a month before the Second World War erupted, a party arrived at the hotel. One of the members of the party was nineteen-year-old up-and-coming actress Sirkka Sari. What happened to her? What happened to us?
