The Nazi German occupation and the Holocaust in 1941–1944

Nazi occupation period (1941–1944) – a period in the history of Lithuania when, under the difficult conditions of the German occupation, Lithuanians sought to restore an independent state, when Jews and other groups of people were persecuted and annihilated, and Germanisation and economic exploitation of the country took place. Up to now these events have been an integral part of the relationships in Lithuanian social life and still affect relations between Lithuanians, Lithuanians and Jews, and between Lithuanians and members of other ethnic communities in the country and beyond its borders. It is these relations that determine the nature of the research of the Genocide and Resistance Research Department. Currently, several main directions of historical research can be identified. The first direction is research on the aspirations of Lithuanians for freedom under the conditions of the Nazi occupation regime. The main focus is research on the 1941 June Uprising in Lithuania. The aim is to reveal the reasons for the Uprising, its progress in various locations of Lithuania, and its place within the general context of the Lithuanian resistance in 1940–1941. The second direction is research on the history of Lithuanian military units during the Nazi occupation, the main focus being on the history of the Lithuanian self-defence battalions. The formation of individual battalions and their operations are being researched with special attention being given to the participation of the battalions in the genocide of the Jewish population and other groups of people. The research aims to determine the number of Lithuanian self-defence battalions which participated in the genocide and the motives of the soldiers of the battalions who participated in the annihilation operations. The third direction is research on the Holocaust in the Lithuanian province. The aim of this research is to identify the process and stages of the genocide of the Jews in different locations in Lithuania, the perpetrators and their motives on the basis of the general features of the Holocaust in Lithuania. The fourth direction is research on the activities of the Soviet partisans in Lithuania. The aim is to reveal the formation of the Soviet underground, areas of its activities, and its initiators. The main focus is research on the repressive, terrorist activities of the members of the Soviet underground. The research also seeks to provide specific information about members of the Soviet underground and their relations with the local population.
