When the Jew Marxists came to Lithuania.

When the Jew Marxists came to Lithuania.
When the Jew Marxists came to Lithuania.

One of the most striking features of the Soviet deportations in Lithuania was the intentional effort of the Soviet authorities to target the family. To disrupt its potentially dangerous nature as a cohesive social unit and for purposes of deportees’ transportation, distribution, and employment in the Soviet interior, the Soviet government issued a specific order detailing instructions for the detainment of individual families.

Among these instructions, issued by the NKVD Peoples’ Commissar I. Serov “in regard to the Baltic deportations,” there was a paragraph on “How to separate the deportee’s family from the head of the family”:

Quote:Due to the fact that most of the deported have to be arrested and imprisoned in special camps and their families taken to special exile settlements..., the head and members of a deported family must be taken at the same time, without having been informed about their future separation... Until they reach a loading station, all members of the family are to be transported in one carriage, and only at the station must the head of the family be separated from his family and placed into a special train carriage.

Although according to these instructions, the deportees’ family was given “no longer than two hours for preparation” and each member was allowed to take up to 100 kg of food, clothing, and personal belongings, in reality the NKVD and the local militia that conducted the arrests rarely followed these directives. Looting, drinking, debauchery, intimidation, and beatings were common as entire families were arrested and deported “as they were found,” without adequate clothing and resources.

One of the Lithuanian child deportees, Jūratė Marcinkevičienė, arrested at the age of four, describes one of the typical cases:

Our entire family was deported in the early morning of June 13, 1941. Seven soldiers came, forced us from our sleep; they seated father on a stool, ordered him to raise his hands and pointed a pistol at him. They seated us, four children, at the table; we were crying and screaming, afraid for father... After they finished the search, they piled all our books in the yard and set them on fire telling us that they were bourgeois literature. My youngest sister was only two years old

He and his classmates were arrested right in their school classroom and then taken to a local NKVD headquarters for interrogation. In Kaunas, during the arrest of an eight-year-old Jokūbas Baronas, he was shot through his shoulder.
Quote:Thirteen-year-old Antanina Garmutė was seized separately from her family because her parents were not home at the time of the arrest; she was ordered to gather her belongings in five minutes. After an attempted escape, she was beaten unconscious.

They were loaded into cattle cars (on average 30-40 people per carriage)
together with their personal belongings and then transported to the Soviet interior. As a rule, women, children and the elderly were deported separately from the family heads.This did not provide them with any additional comfort: the deportees’ diaries are full of references to the early deaths of small children, pregnant women, and the elderly from suffocation, congestion, heat and dehydration inside the train carriages. In his memoirs, A. Andriukaitis reports about the death of a certain Žeglienė. She died after giving birth in a train carriage near Omsk:

Quote:Žeglienė was lifted from the train and laid on the ground. But she lost blood and died, and the baby was screaming next to her. We don’t know whether anyone took him because our train moved ahead after letting a military echelon pass by. The dead mother and her newborn remained on the ground.

Armed convoys were given the responsibility of clearing the deportees’ carriages of corpses; often they were simply dumped on the road or in a nearby forest.

After her arrest in 1941 at the age of fourteen, Dalia Grinkevičiūtė was deported to a forced labor camp in eastern Siberia. In 1949, she managed to escape to Lithuania and wrote a memoir of her displacement. She was caught in 1951 and sent back to Siberia again. Before her second arrest, she buried her memoir manuscript in a garden, and it was thought lost until its discovery in 1991, three years after her death.

This discovery, which coincided with the nationalist revival that eventually led to Lithuania’s independence, produced a shock in Lithuanian society and opened a public debate on the Gulag’s victims. As a result, numerous deportees’ memoirs came to light. Vytautas Landsbergis, a political leader of the Lithuanian national movement, described Grinkevičiūtė’s memoir as “the mission... to testify in the court of humanity, a court to judge Communism.”

Extracts of her writings became included in educational programs of Lithuanian secondary schools
