The Baltic states — Grains of wheat

'We were like three grains of wheat which, after the conspiracy by Stalin and Hitler, were to be ground up in the mill of history.'
Vytautas Landsbergis, former chairman of the Supreme Council of Lithuania
in an address to the participants of the international conference related to the 10th anniversary of the barricades in the Baltic states — 'The January Barricades as a Form of National Resistance Against a Totalitarian Regime and Lessons that were Learned' — January 2001
