This book is about the special place of a Soviet-era mass grave in Vilnius, Lithuania, which was discovered in 1994. Various enemies of the Soviets were thrown into trenches there. The book tells real stories of some Tuskulėnai Manor-related people at the time of the Holocaust, the Stalinist terror and the post-WWII Lithuanian anti-Soviet armed resistance.
After the re-establishment of Lithuania’s independence in 1990 and the collapse of the communist regime in the USSR in 1991, the secret of Tuskulėnai Park was uncovered by piecing together information from KGB documents (although the KGB destroyed many of its documents in 1990 and 1991) and then quizzing KGB officers and relatives of KGB employees who, during the Soviet era, had been given accommodation in the park lodge with the mission to keep the secret of the park’s grave.
