16 March - Day of the Book Smugglers in Lithuania
The Knygnešiai or 'Book Smugglers' are a group of people that risked life and limb to preserve their language and national identity through smuggling contraband literature. They defied a ban issued by the Russians from 1866 to 1904 that attempted to replace Latin orthography with Cyrillic.
