Red Terror on the Amber Coast

Red Terror on the Amber Coast documents the fifty-year-long struggle between the people of Lithuania and the Soviet KGB and their predecessors to impose Soviet control on a free and democratic, Western republic.  Using filmed interviews, archival photos and newsreel footage, it describes Stalin’s use of state-sponsored terror to destroy opposition, collectivize agriculture and industry, and create a single social class all under party control.  Some interviews record the long-term, armed resistance by organized partisans to the KGB and its troops.  Others describe their experiences – as adults and children – of arrest, imprisonment, deportation to Siberia and the Arctic coast, and years as slave laborers in the mines and forests of the Far East.
