Viktoras Baltutis was one of The Australian Lithuanian Community’s great movers and shakers.
One of his many achievements includes establishing the Australian Lithuanian Community Archives which are our national treasure repository.
“We are left with nothing but our yearning”
is available through the Archives.
For all those who are interested in the history of Lithuanian Displaced Persons, and for those who knew and worked with Viktoras Baltutis, one of the Adelaide and Australian Lithuanian Community leaders.
Viktoras Baltutis’ book, in particular, chronicles stories and journals of World War II, living in a Displaced Person’s camp, coming to Australia and Australian Lithuanian Community life. A record of these times has been touched upon by a few authors but each one delves into new insights and depths. A recommended read.
