A CHRONICLE OF VIOLENCE: LITHUANIA, 1939-1941
The displayed documents and photos acquaint with the international circumstances in the loss of Lithuania’s independence, the beginning of repressions and Sovietisation of the country, the tragedy of black June, when within several days approximately 18 thousand of citizens were deported from Lithuania to the remotest regions of the Soviet Union. A map, depicting the places of deportation of the Lithuanian population, is displayed; statistical data on the repressions experienced during the Soviet and Nazi occupations are provided. The artistic design of the exhibition reflects the motive of “broken lives”. The background graphics of the stands, imitating the broken glass, give rise to those associations. Black, white and red colours prevail in the stands. Black and white underline the authenticity of the historic material, while red symbolizes occupations Lithuania experienced and the bloodshed during them.
