Ninth Fort

Kaunas was a significant cultural base of the Jews living in Lithuania; its Jewish community amounted to one third of the city's inhabitants, and the ghetto set up here further increased their number. Fort IX is a stronghold and museum that commemorates Kaunas's eventful history, and the people who were killed or imprisoned here under the WWII Holocaust.
