Eugen Schauman was originally buried by the Russians in an unmarked grave in Malm.  The burial took place at night time.  After Russian pressure subsided, he was moved to a family grave in the town of Borgå, next to his mother.  The re-burial took place  on May 10, 1906, and was attended by hundreds of people, who showed their respect to Schauman .  The monument shown above was placed on the grave in 1910 using funds collected by Finnish college students.  The pictures above were taken on the morning of the 100th anniversary of Schaumans death.  Later that day there was a festive gathering at the grave when Nylands Nation, the student organization that Schauman belonged to showed their respects at the grave.
