It is interesting that someone takes care of the opinion of the other side.
Lithuanian approach to the Teutonic Order as follows: The group of Christian fanatics and criminals, led by the Vatican, and supported by the whole of the Christian Europe, which cover of religion killed our people and seized our lands.
It is common knowledge, it was learned in school to a certain extent, now in declining extent.
As far as I understand, there is a continuing desire to cover up these crimes.
And some of that crimes was before the Teutonic Order is hidden and little known.
It should also be added that the Teutonic Order was not of this activity in our region a pioneer.
Some Lithuanians allied tribes were destroyed before (Yotvingians, Heruls).
It should be added that the Teutonic Order is just tip of the iceberg of the religious war in Europe lasted a millennium, about this war in Europe now, no one does not want to know anything.
Well, tales about how civilized Christians civilizing the wild pagans in Europe, I do not consider "knowledge". It was not so.
