The Ninth Fort was a part of the defense system of Kaunas Fortress. The fort was set up in 1913. After the First World War the Ninth Fort has never been used as a defensive fortification. In 1924 the Ninth Fort became a division of the Kaunas Hard Labour Prison. In 1940–1941 and 1944–1948 – there was the NKVD (The People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs) prison. During the Nazi occupation the Ninth Fort was a site of massacre. From 1941 to 1944 in the Ninth Fort more than 50.000 people of different nations were killed. Most of them were Jewish. In 1958, a decision was made to commemorate the killed people, and a museum was established in the Ninth Fort.
