The Presentation of the Book about Lithuanians in Germany

November 17, 2021

The book “Vokietijos lietuviai, 1950– 1990” [Lithuanian Germans in 1950- 1990] by Vincas Bartusevičius was presented at the National Library of Lithuania on November 10, 2021.

Bartusevičius was a prominent diaspora figure, whose friendship with the National Library of Lithuania had lasted for over three decades. Thanks to the efforts of Bartusevičius and other people of the Lithuanian Institute of Culture in Germany, one of the first shipments of Lithuanian diaspora books reached the Library in 1990.

The colleagues of Lithuanian Emigration Institute at Vytautas Magnus University attended the event: Dr. Daiva Dapkutė, the compiler and editor of the book, and Dr. Asta Petraitytė-Briedienė. Jolanta Budriūnienė, head of the Documentary Heritage Research Department of the National Library of Lithuania, also participated in the discussion. The researcher of the National Library of Lithuania, Dr. Ina Ėmužienė, hosted the event.
