Recently turning 80, the Godfather of post-war Lithuanian photography Antanas Sutkus was the first artist to openly confront the Holocaust in Soviet-era Lithuania, starting a project to photograph its Lithuanian survivors at an unsanctioned Holocaust commemoration event at the Ninth Fort in Kaunas in 1988 when doing so was still a potentially dangerous thing to do. The project grew over time and eventually became a book, In Memoriam (sometimes also referred to as Pro Memoria), which can be found in bookshops around the country. This special exhibition was opened on the 75th anniversary of the liquidation of the Kovno Ghetto and is well worth a visit.
