Together with the architect J.S. Sirén, Into Saxelin designed and realized the monument to the Finnish volunteers who fell in the Estonian war of independence in 1919. The monument is a cube cut from red granite with dedications in Estonian, Finnish and Swedish as well as the names of the fallen inscribed in the stone. The memorial in Vanha Kirkkopuisto (Old Church Park) was commissioned by the Estonian Republic.
