11 March - Day of Restoration of the Independence of Lithuania
On March 11, 1990, Lithuania declared that it was an independent nation, the first of the Soviet republics to do so. Not to confuse things, but March 11 is the Day of the Restoration of the State of Lithuania, which is when Lithuania declared its separation from the USSR and the reestablishment of both its original statehood as well as its freedom from the Russian Empire and Germany.
Lithuanian armed resistance to the Soviet occupation lasted until the early 1950s. On 11 March 1990, a year before the formal dissolution of the Soviet Union, Lithuania passed the Act of the Re-Establishment of the State of Lithuania, becoming the first Soviet republic to proclaim its independence.
