This is one of those places that makes you realize your own humanity and humanity's own potential to do both great and terrible things. We're geniuses of both good and evil. Even if you don't understand the languages of the exhibits, they're still worth seeing and appreciating.

Not the easiest place to find in Kaunas without a car, but worth the trouble. Not quite as well known as Auschwitz, but at least 50000 people were executed here by the Nazis during WW2, mainly Baltic Jews. The large sculptures at the site offer a powerful memory of the things which occurred here. There is also an old prison... More

An immense and powerful monument which wasn't as clearly interpreted as we had expected when we visited in December. Though the Museum display is very moving and well presented we missed a more detailed background history. Also the place was freezing!

It's a nice place for the history lovers. The fort is a part of 20th Century history in Kaunas and a reflection of the drastic regimes those have influenced to the city and whole history of the country.

Also included are exhibits about Lithuanian suffering and political oppression under the Soviets, as well as an outdoor memorial to victims of the Nazi genocide in WWII. I particularly appreciated the exhibit about Chiune Sugihara,... More
