    Event History
    According to the postwar testimony of a Lithuanian eyewitness, in 1941-42 twenty young Jewish men were rounded-up for road construction work near Utena. When they arrived at the work site they were shot by Lithuanian police and buried in the woods in a common grave. The bodies were not recovered until the eyewitness revealed his story to his confessor on his deathbed. The priest then informed the authorities who located the grave.
