July 20, 2021

The new exhibition “Vardan laisvos Lietuvos. JAV lietuvių paramos Lietuvai tradicija” (“In the Name of Free Lithuania. The Tradition of American-Lithuanians Supporting Lithuania”) opened on July 6 at the Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania. The exhibition displays the history of the Lithuanian diaspora in the United States and the work carried out to restore and maintain Lithuanian statehood, as well as the formation of the tradition of supporting Lithuania. The contribution of the Lithuanian diaspora in the US, one of the largest Lithuanian diaspora communities, to Lithuania’s statehood has been extremely significant, including not only political and economic but cultural aspects as well. The exhibition consists of five parts based on the chronological principle.
