Welcome to Paneriai
A bleak chapter of Lithuania’s wartime history is commemorated in this neighbourhood of Vilnius, 11km southwest of the centre. Paneriai is notorious as the site of 100,000 murders – the exact figure is unknown – by subunits of the Nazi secret police. These wooded hills were previously an outdoor retreat for Vilnius’ residents but today the area is a sombre memorial site.
