The Church Heritage Museum invites you to visit an installation in the bell tower of Vilnius Cathedral dedicated to the fiftieth anniversary of "The Chronicle of the Catholic Church in Lithuania". Visitors will be able to interactively experience the dangerous work of distributing "The Chronicle", symbolically becoming collaborators and boldly "freeing" the knowledge trapped in the "cage" of Soviet censorship. The installation in the bell tower is complemented by audio recordings from the archive of "The Voice of America" radio, as well as information stands in the cathedral square, which invite visitors to learn more about the history of the publication and distribution of "The Chronicle".
