Ninth Fort, Kaunas: 6 reviews and 21 photos
This late 19th century fort was the ninth in a series constructed by the Russians to defend the western border of their empire. Under Nazi occupation Jews were imprisoned here before execution in the killing fields behind. It wasn?t just Lithuanian Jews who perished here. During the Soviet years a typically bland concrete museum commemorating the genocide of the ?Soviet people? was built here. Jews were never specifically mentioned. It?s now the site of a museum, focusing on both the extermination of Jews as well as the deportations of Lithuanians by the Soviets.
Address: Zemaičių Plentas 73
Directions: Should take a bus from the bus station. There should be some going every 15-30 minutes.
