Klaipėda

Resistance & Deportation Exposition

  S. Nėries 4      (+370) 46 41 05 27     24 Apr 2019
A small plaque on the wall of Klaipėda’s Customs building marks the spot where the NKVD and KGB once had their headquarters in the city. Not quite up to the standard of its counterpart in the capital, the exhibition is still more than worth the visit. Between 1945 and 1954, the year after Stalin’s death, a total of 8,268 people were imprisoned here, of whom the vast majority were psychologically and/or physically tortured and some murdered. Various displays tell the story in more detail and also focus on the guerrilla fight against Soviet occupation that ended in the mid-1950s.
