The exhibition arranged in this small space tells about the Nazi occupation, Gestapo prisons and prisoners, the history of the Vilnius ghetto, mass executions at Paneriai, the latest research data collected in the territory of Paneriai forest by order of the Genocide and Resistance Research Centre of Lithuania in 2008, and the award of the title of the Righteous among the Nations to non-Jewish residents of Lithuania who saved Jews during the Holocaust. A documentary created by Algis Kuzmickas for this exhibition – Hostages. July 1941 – is shown on the monitor.

The exhibition was part of the programme of the year commemorating Lithuanian residents who were victims of the Holocaust and was opened on 20 October 2011. The exhibition was designed and implemented by UAB Forteco.
