The Lithuanian army and the Genocide and Resistance Research Centre of Lithuania will cooperate in the investigation of resistance fights. Lithuania's Chief of Defense Lieutenant General Arvydas Pocius and Director of the Genocide and Resistance Research Centre of Lithuania Birutė Burauskaitė signed the agreement on Wednesday.

The parties plan to cooperate on the organization of a project entitled "Attempts to Break Through "The Iron Curtain" During The Soviet Occupation – The Continuity of Civilian Resistance Fights and Denial of the Soviet Order", aimed at collecting information from resistance fighters and make public some still unknown facts and methods of resistance, the Ministry of National Defense has said.

"People tried to escape from Soviet labor camps for various purposes. People just wanted to live the way they wanted to. They were not able to do so here during the occupation, so they hoped to do that in the West. There are all sorts of people and fates, and we'll try to show that in our publication," Burauskaitė said.

She said that military documents contained a lot of information about people who tried to escape the Soviet Union, and she hoped that the army would provide them.

Over 20,000 resistance fighters and their supporters were killed in Lithuania during the Soviet occupation until 1953.
