Antanas Snieckus, was First Secretary of the Lithuanian Communist Party from 1940 to 1974. There's an interesting biography of him in Wikipedia, which notes, among other things:
"Snieckus was the initiator of the first mass deportations of Lithuanians on 14–19 June 1941. He even had his own brother, with his family, deported to Siberia, where his brother died."
