The successive occupations of Lithuania by Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union under Stalin were accompanied by mass murder, deportations and the elimination of its large Jewish community in the Holocaust, giving the horrors of World War II a particular intensity. Moreover, the fighting continued after 1945 with the anti-Soviet insurrection, crushed through more massive deportations and forced collectivization in 1948-1951.
