Vilnius - KGB building 2/4

 

In the previous image you could make out the inscriptions on the stones - memorialising those who were killed in its cellars.

I like that, Tom...on the side of the building.
Tom Wilson: If the KGB ever come back, they'll have to spend a lot of time erasing the names smile

It would be odd to have these inscriptions in your own hometown Tom
Tom Wilson: Indeed. Can you imagine what would have happened if we had been occupied during WWII?

A fitting memorial Tom. It makes me shudder to think of the horrors that must have been carried out here.
Tom Wilson: I'm in two minds about visiting those basements, Chad.

An excellent composition for the subject at hand.

In Budapest they have a similar building, The House of Terror, that have seen all kinds of atrocities; first during Nazi occupation and the Soviet occupation. It is a great museum to visit, even going down into the cellars. During both occupations the place was officially known as the House of Loyalty.
Tom Wilson: Mmm - the house of testing your loyalty through torture, eh?
Nicely composed, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Mary - the location of the potted plants seemed too good to miss smile
Thank goodness those people are being remembered.
Tom Wilson: I don't think they'll be forgotten, Brian - Lithuania regards them as heroes of independence.
A nice, if somewhat sobering photo, Tom.
