    • Synopsis
    • Lithuania had declared independence from the USSR on March 11th, 1990. A handful of intellectuals had taken advantage of existing Soviet laws and of Gorbachev’s glasnost (“openness”) to regain their country’s independence. It was a peaceful revolution, dubbed the “Singing Revolution” because demonstrations included the singing of national folk songs and hymns, an act that was forbidden under Soviet rule.
      Beginning in early January 1991, Soviet tanks moved into Vilnius along with several other key cities, and Soviet troops began taking over government and press buildings. The Soviet’s ultimate goal was to take over the Parliament building and regain governance of Lithuania.
