Fodor's Expert Review Genocido Auku Muziejus
In the New Town, at the Genocido Auku Muziejus, plaques take you through a litany of horrors in the basement of the former KGB prison. Hundreds of Lithuanians were killed here, and hundreds of thousands more were deported to Siberia by the Soviet regime during the 1940s and '50s. The former execution room now has a floor made entirely of glass cases displaying objects recovered from the mass graves in which the Soviets buried the prisoners. A section dedicated to the Holocaust in Lithuania was opened in 2011.
