Among around 20,000 victims of political repressions buried in mass graves in the territory of the Memorial complex, there are 77 Lithuanian citizens shot between July 1942 and February 1943 in the basement of the NKVD internal prison of Sverdlovsk Region. Among them – eight members of the 1918–1940 Cabinets of Ministers of the Republic of Lithuania – Prime Minister Pranas Dovydaitis, Ministers of the Interior Petras Aravičius, Antanas Endziulaitis and Zigmas Pranas Starkus, Minister of Transport and Foreign Affairs Valdemaras Vytautas Čarneckis, Minister of Education Kazimieras Jokantas, Minister of Defence Juozas Papečkys and Minister of Finance Jonas Sutkus. All of them were among the first victims of the Soviet occupation of Lithuania, „socially foreign and dangerous elements“ of the new regime that had to be destroyed.
