Here is "The Rower's Song," from his symphonic suite, "African Sketches," composed in 1961.



The weekend of January 11-13, 1991 saw a series of events, now known as the January Events, which led to Lithuania's independence from the Soviet Union, on 16 February. This stamp, issued on January 12, commemorates the events of January 13, 1991, in which 14 Lithuanian nationalist protestors were killed by the Soviet army, 2 of them being crushed by tanks.

Part of an ongoing series showcasing Lithuania's technical heritage, this stamp, issued on March 5, depicts a paper mill.

Lithuania has some pretty stamps, and glad to see there still are countries that only issue 21 stamps! It must also be a very healthy country to live in, Mr. Juzeliunas sure had a looooooooooong life!
