A portion of an exhibit titled “The Chronicle of the Catholic Church in Lithuania” is seen July 19, 2022, in Memorial Hall at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington. During the Soviet occupation of Lithuania from 1972 to 1989, the Chronicle was an underground publication that was smuggled out of the country and sent to New York to be translated and disseminated to a wider audience. The Chronicle was founded by Father Sigitas Tamkevicius, who also edited it until his arrest in 1983. During its 17-year run, 16 others involved in producing the Chronicle also were arrested — a priest, four nuns and 11 laypeople. During the Communist era, Catholics in Lithuania and in other East European nations suffered many atrocities. Churches were shut down, clergy were prohibited from practicing key elements of the faith, religious education was forbidden, and many priests and religious men and women were arrested and imprisoned.
