 The drama of war refugees is usually connected to the Japanese Consul Chiune Sugihara and Honorary Consul of the Netherlands Jan Zwartendijk, who issued visas for life. However, Lithuania’s position and aid to war refugees is often forgotten, even though the refugees started looking for ways to escape when the Soviets started to crush Lithuania’s independence.
