Vilnius holds funeral for national hero

Video info

Date: 2018-10-06 17:25:57
Place: Vilnius, Lithuania
Duration: 1:38

Event description

The post-war armed resistance hero, whose remains had been found and identified earlier this year, were buried in the pantheon of the state's leaders at Vilnius' Antakalnis Cemetery. The partisan commander's flag-draped coffin was escorted to his final resting place by the country's leaders, soldiers and thousands of ordinary people. Ramanauskas-Vanagas, the commander of the Dzukija partisan region in southern Lithuania, was among the partisan leaders who signed the Union of Lithuanian Freedom Fighters' Declaration in 1949. He was appointed commander-in-chief of Lithuania's defense forces in the same year. After several years in hiding, Ramanauskas-Vanagas was arrested and brutally tortured by the Soviets in 1956 and executed a year later.
