The museum of Genocide Victims
This museum is a former prison for political detainees. It is quite dark and depressive. The exposition tells the story of the people who spent years in prison and were executed to death. It was happening from 1940-1940 and consisted of different periods of sovietisation of Lithuania and resistance of the locals. For those who is interested in this particular part of Lithuanian history it might be very interesting, but only for emotionally strong visitors. Images are very realistic and explicit. Interiors are sometimes shocking.
I was interested in the activities of KGB - Soviet secret services (something like FBI), and I've seen lots of documents, pictures and maps on this topic in this museum, as during some years KGB had an office in this very building. [more]
