    MONUMENT  OF  PARTISANTS ?

    There was no tourist information in and on Rudamina. There were inscriptions on a few graves and monuments located around parish church but exclusively in Lithuanian. I couldn't understand them.

    There was written something on this wooden statue of Jesus Christ, which stood somewhere along main highway 134, but I could only understand... 1944 - 1954. Was there something about Lithuanian partisants who fighted against Soviet occupants in these years? On February 1945, 200 partisans attacked Rudamina and killed 7 "destroyers". Political prisoners were liberated and weapons were seized from the NKVD magazine (arsenal).

    Do you know Latin?

    IN  LATIN

    Well, except no information and some information given in Lithuanian I found this commemorative plaque fixed to a wall of Rudamina parish church by it's northern door. It was written in Latin, language widely used esp. by clergy in this area in the past. Now? Latin is used only in medicine and still in church but not that widely.

    The Latin inscription informed that Augustinus Policarpus Marcieiewski was burried there in 1827. He was the Augustow (Poland) suffragan bishop.

    SHORT  INFORMATION  ON  A  PARISH  CHURCH

    The only tourist information I could find in Rudamina was included on that information plaque on my picture which was fixed to a wall of a parish church.
    There were plaques similar in style and shortage of information limited to Lithuanian language, fixed on a wall of most churches around Lithuania.

    Rudamina was not mentioned in my travel books to Lithuania and I couldn't find any webpage on Rudamina on the internet as well. It seems, that I am the first with this page :-).
