Summary / Abstract:

ENThe role of the USSR governmental institution – the Ministry of Higher Education – in the sovietisation of Lithuanian schools of higher education is revealed. The historical material at the archives of the Russian Federation and Lithuania shows that the Ministry was more an institution of ideological control than of professional supervision. The Ministry together with the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party(B) carried out three long-term (in 1946, 1948 and 1952) inspections of Lithuanian schools of higher education, as well as constantly sending its people to separate institutions. During those supervision sessions the ministry’s workers employing the information of repressive and ideological agencies checked the teachers’ past, their loyalty to the Soviet authorities, the students’ social background. Ideologically unreliable teachers and students were expelled from those schools of higher education. Such measures were applied in all countries incorporated into the Soviet Union in 1939 and 1940. The Ministry, ignoring the position of the Central Committee of the LCP(B) and the Council of Ministers of Soviet Lithuania, demanded that the schools of higher education in Vilnius and Kaunas be joined, other structural changes were carried out, due to which no higher schools of the humanities and the arts were left in Kaunas.
