Abstract: This chapter explores the ways in which different people engage with and understand the material legacy of the German presence in Finnish Lapland from the time of the Second World War. The different notions of ‘scale’ are assessed through the ways in which scale relates to the so-called ‘dark’ heritage of this period and place, at local, regional, national and international levels. The research starting point has been the history of Finnish Lapland in the Second World War, including the so-called ‘Lapland War’ (1944–45), with contestations appearing between the public and private spheres, and differently-scaled notions of heritage making.
