At the rally in the city center came a few dozen people. They recalled how on June 22, immediately after the German attack on the USSR, an uprising began on the whole territory of Lithuania, headed by members of the Front of Lithuanian activists (Lietuvos Aktyvistų Frontas). According to modern Lithuanian historians, about 100,000 people took part in the uprising. The rebels, who formed the “self-defense detachments”, took control of railways, bridges, communication centers, food and equipment depots, and also occupied the settlements left by the Soviet troops. The sovietization of Lithuania, the arrests and exiles of thousands of inhabitants to Siberia, left terrible memories and became, perhaps, the most important catalyst and trigger for the uprising.
