Pro-german prussian lithuanians called him Verfluchte Litauer, lithuanians called him german, M. Jankus called himself as prussian lithuanian (mažlietuvis).  

Where the @£$^ you see prussian? Mazlietuvis means "little, minor". And who the hell they were minor or little part of?
On the other hand - it reminds me how people percept. To Russians we once were (still are?) f**** Germans, in the West were bloody Russians...

Situation in 1958 among prussian lithuanians is totally different. They designated themselves as germans and emigrated. So both proved for themselves who they are. And both had right to do so.

If in 1958 or some 1978 someone would have came up with the idea to allow Lithuanians to designate themselves as Germans - I think only few fellas lost in Varena woods would've left there. And incognito would be surprised how deep attachment to German roots is
