Organizer: Kaunas County Public Library
During the interwar period, the architect Feliksas Vizbaras built a modern „White Villa“, also called a castle built on the Parodos hill. During the Soviet era, it became a favorite restaurant of nomenclature and militia officers, a place of their celebration and espionage. A restaurant was guarded during nights, meanwhile, the underground prints were printed by Algirdas Vaclovas Patackas. A dissident, a future defender of Lithuania’s independence, and at that time a man without a place and future, constantly persecuted, socially almost non-existent.
Now the building is demolished, this place for the casual passer-by or even to the settler of Žaliakalnis, does not reveal anything: neither about the interwar castle or the Soviet-era confessional nor about the watchman’s efforts to live what he considered to be true. On one of the construction awnings surrounding the territory, someone aptly and symbolically wrote “Even a broken clock is correct twice a day”.
