Day of Freedom Defenders

Published by Learning 4 Tomorrow on

The 13th of January is the Day of Freedom Defenders. The Day of Freedom Defenders commemorates the day when Soviet troops stormed the television tower amidst Lithuania’s struggle for independence in 1991.

We have a common event to respect and remember people who where killed during these event in 1991. We light a candle in each windows in whole Lithuania on the 13th of January 8.00-8.10 a.m.

The symbol of this day is the flower called Neužmirštuolė (in English forget-me-not). Lithuanians celebrated the 30th anniversary of it in 2021.
