Summary / Abstract:

ENThis article analyzes the material assistance that Lithuanian Catholic organizations in the diaspora and persons closely associated with them rendered to Lithuania in its breakthrough period from 1990 to 1993. We describe the extent, directions, motives, and goals of this assistance together with the way changes in Lithuania‘s political circumstances affected the development of Catholic aid. Our emphasis is on the persons who organized this aid; their methods of fund-raising and of administering that assistance; the quantities of aid involved; the cooperation between organizations and people in the diaspora and aid recipients, distributors, and organizers in Lithuania itself; and the aid-related activities of the Ateitininkai organization, the Baltic-American Freedom Foundation, Lithuanian Catholic Religious Aid, and assorted individual benefactors. Our research conclusions are based on unstructured interviews with Gintė Damušis, Salvijus Kungys, Rimantas Gudelis, Vidas Abraitis, Liutauras Serapinas, Vytautas Steponas Vaičiūnas, Antanas Saulaitis, Robertas Grigas, and Sister Barbara Valuckas.
