The KGB prison
The Soviet Union occupied Lithuania on 15 June 1940, having accused Lithuania of not keeping the treaty for mutual assistance. People not loyal to the occupiers were arrested, killed or deported to Siberia. To persecute people, special institutions were established, and the network of prisons and detention centres was widened.
The former execution camera
More than a thousand prisoners were killed in the execution chamber in the basement of the central KGB building between 1944 and the early 1960s.
