As the commemoration of the of the January 13, 1991 approaches, I thought it would be nice to dig up a link a poster from 1991 - a really cool one - depicting a young person (perhaps 16 or 17 years old) being raised above the crowd and holding the Lithuanian flag. The striking feature of this picture was that the foreground showed a big group the Soviet soldiers, in straigth lines, in helmets and AK-47s. I guess that was one of these pictures that IMHO catch the moment really well - and for some reason it stays in my memory. Alas, I could not find it.
But I found a nice article by T. Venclova, a good friend of Cz.Milosz. It is called "The best way to love our identity" - it touches upon modern Lithuanian history and culture and present realities. So, here it is - for your reading pleasure:
