Please keep educating about the evils of communism and socialism!
For added tearjerker points, it’s worth mentioning that depending on where in Lithuania this is, the people in the photo might have been German citizens in East Prussia before WWII, and would have had to make the choice of leaving everything behind to follow the retreating Germans, or staying, and risking losing everything to the Soviets anyway.
I have relatives who had to make that decision, and spent the next 4 years getting shuffled around in refugee camps in Germany and Italy before finally being sent off to Australia to make a new life for themselves. There’s a very real chance that the members of the family who stayed were subject to the same fate as the people in the photo here.
