Lithuanian
National
Cemetery

Lithuanian National Cemetery is a small cemetery located on Kean Avenue in Justice, next to Archer Woods Cemetery. It is isolated, quiet, and peaceful.

Lithuania external was occupied for much of its recent historyexternal. Between 1795 and World War I, Lithuania was controlled by Imperial Russia, then briefly occupied by Germans during the war until gaining its independence in 1918.

In the later days of the Russian occupation, Lithuanian activists published and demonstrated for independence. Several of those revolutionary heroes are buried here, in Chicago.

World War II brought an end to independence, with the Germans controlling Lithuania again; in 1944 the Soviets took control. It was not until the collapse of the Soviet Union that Lithuania finally regained its independence in 1990.
