Commissioner Vytenis Andriukaitis grew up in a Stalin Gulag, his family (pictured) having been deported from #Lithuania to #Siberia by Soviet Communists in June 1941.

Even after #WorldWarII , many Central and Eastern Europeans continued to suffer under other totalitarian or authoritarian regimes. Fortunately, young generations of Europeans today have not experienced this. But we must never take our freedoms for granted.
