what I see today on this site :eek:

Vakar Šiandien Lietuvos istorijoje Rytoj

1797 m. Sankt Peterburge Rusija, Prūsija ir Austrija pasirašė aktą, kuriuo galutinai teisiškai panaikinta Lenkijos ir Lietuvos Valstybė.
1923 m. Lietuvos remiami Klaipėdos krašto sukilėliai užėmė Klaipėdą.

Yesterday Today in history of Lithuania Tomorrow
January 15th

in 1797 in Sankt-Peterburg Russia, Prussia and Austria signed a threaty, by this was abolited state of Poland and Liyhuania.
in 1923 rebels of Memelland suported by Lithuania captured Klaipeda.
Why without quotes "rebels"? So you say rebellion was?
Mr. Tomas Baranauskas denies himself:

1923 01 10 m. sukilėliais perrengti Lietuvos kariuomenės daliniai perėjo Klaipėdos krašto sieną.
In 1923 01 10 Lithuanian army redressed as rebels crossed the border of Memelland.  


On a Lithuanian genealogy list (mostly American) we had exactly this problem. An American-Lithuanian came up with exactly this calendar day information "in 1923 rebels of Memelland suported by Lithuania captured Klaipeda" and praised Tomas Baranauskas - who was present at the discussion!!!- for his work. As it turned out the Americans thought that the Memelländers were rising against German rule. When I insisted that the French military were attacked and not German police or army - the German army had been disarmed after Versailles!!-, one of the Lithuanian-Americans even insisted that he once had a neighbour who had participated in this uprising against German authorities.
And how did Baranauskas react? He might have corrected this misunderstanding caused by his deliberate misinformation.
But no, the man kept silent, probably enjoying the effects of his propaganda.
