Prominent Catholic clergyman Alfosnas Svarinskas passes away

Alfonsas Svarinskas
DELFI (D.Sinkevičiaus nuotr.)

Persecuted by Soviet security services right after the war, Svarinskas left the seminary and joined Lithuanian partisans who were waging almost decade-long struggle against Soviet occupation.

In 1972 he started his stint at the underground Christian newspaper, the Chronicles of Lithuanian Catholic Church. His relentless anti-Soviet activities earned Svarinskas repeated sentences in remote labour camps.
