Marriage in the DP Camp

Description

Stasė Vanagas and Ričardas Petersonas were married on October 22, 1949. The bride and the groom were teachers in the Oldenburg, DP camp where they had met. The maid of honor is behind the bride, and the best man is behind and to the left of the bride.

Stasė Vanagas graduated from Klaipėda Pedagogical Institute in 1939. In 1941 she was arrested and imprisoned by the Soviets. From 1941 to 1943 she studied Lithuanian language and literature at Vilnius University. As the Russians reoccupied the country in 1944, she fled Lithuania with her mother Ona, sisters (Stefa, Bronė, Janina, and Zita), and brother Adolfas. Eventually, everyone, except Stasė, settled in Canada. Stasė's stepfather Leonas, and brother, Juozas, with his family stayed in Lithuania. Juozas and his family fled the farmstead and lived in twelve different places in Lithuania trying to escape deportation. He came back to his farmstead after Stalin's death in 1953.

“My stepfather Leonas did not flee in 1944, stating: ‘I know Russian. I will take care of the house. I will be able to communicate with them [the Soviets]. You, the young ones, with your mother, flee from the front for about a month or two. America will not let the Russians stay here.' He did not take care of the house for long. He died in 1948."
