The train station, at the centre of the borough, holds dark memories, as the Soviet regime deported about 300 000 Lithuanian people, including many children and old people (about 10% of total population) to Siberia. Many of them died en–route or soon after reaching their cold destinations.
A collapsed cross, old locomotive and two cattle wagons similar to those used for deportations remind the events. It was the last station in Lithuania before the Soviets deported thousands of people to Siberia.Back
