Party Committee resolutions concerning professors from Lithuanian Literature Department
The collection contains Vilnius University Party Committee documents (reports, protocols, resolutions) about the activities of four professors and scholars in the Department of Lithuanian Literature (1958-1959). Four teachers and researchers in the department, Vanda Zaborskaitė, Irena Kostkevičiūtė, Meilė Lukšienė and Aurelija Rabačiauskaitė, were accused by Party activists and the Party Committee of anti-Marxism, taking a 'bourgeois' approach to Lithuanian literature, and idealising Lithuanian history. They were severely criticised at Party Committee meetings. All four were eventually expelled from the university.
