There were numerous photograps of young boys and guys Lithuanian partisans displayed in the Museum of Exiles & Political Prisoners. There were signs of each district group of freedom fighters, two of them on my picture.
An armed resistance of partisans in 1944-1953 took about 20,000 sons and daughters from Lithuanian nation. More than a half of them perished fighting for freedom in 1944-1945. Middle lenght of fighting as a partisan was only 2-3 years. Most of the fighters that died and was killed were younger than 21. Even after the death of Lithuanian patriots jeering at them was often. To frighten the inhabitants, the bodies of partisans were laid down in town squares, yards and markets.
