The events of WWII forced many Lithuanians to flee their country. Unable to return, over 10,000 came to Australia and of those 1,500 made South Australia their home. This is their history.

First Australian Lithuanian Newspaper
Further to the blog below on newspapers, the Australian Lithuanian was published fortnightly and initiated by Jurgis Glusauskas. It contained articles, poems, general news in Australia and from overseas. As with any foreign publication of the time it was required to publish a certain percentage in English. It was a significant publication of around 36 pages.
