The first History of Belarus in the Lithuanian language!

Printed in summer 2021 (the second edition in the first quarter of 2022), it represents a Lithuanian point of view to the history of its closest neighbour. Belarusian history is being explained through the eyes of a Lithuanian. Though both countries have shared a common past since the 13th century, national narrations contradict and conflict. This is the first attempt to create a narration that would help understand each other and not satisfy one of the sides. The book is addressed to a Lithuanian reader or a person who knows Lithuanian national historical narration.

Unfortunately, the book is in the Lithuanian language only.
