Museum of Genocide Victims

The Museum of Genocide Victims chronicles a dark part of Lithuania’s recent history: the Nazi and Soviet occupation from 1940 to 1991. Housed in the former KGB headquarters building, the museum opened in 1992 as a reminder to Lithuanians and the rest of the world of the importance of a country’s independence. Learn the story from first-hand accounts of what happened in Lithuania during those years, from oppression to resistance and finally to freedom.
