Lonely Planet review for Field of Sacrifice
Field of Sacrifice - a name engraved on paving slabs in front of the garden is a tragic (2002) tribute to the young Kaunas hero, Kaunas student Romas Kalanta. On 14 May 1972 he doused himself in petrol and set fire to himself in protest at tyrannical Soviet communist rule. A suicide note was found in his diary explaining why.
