PRIEST POLIKARPAS MACIJAUSKAS WITH NUNS. DURING THE WAR JEWS WERE HIDEN IN THIS MONASTERY. THEY WERE GIVEN HABITS TO LOOK LIKE NUNS.
When people were transported to Germany from  Šiauliai ghetto, the priest sent his carriages with horses and hid the people with peasants. When there was a shortage of drugs, he provided us with it. He took care of us as his own children.
