'Kozakaitė J, Piombino-Mascali D, Brindzaitė R, Miliauskienė Ž, Jankauskas R, 2022: THE BATTLE OF MEMEL: A FORENSIC ANTHROPOLOGICAL APPROACH. Anthropologie (Brno) 60, 2: 305-317'.
Known as one of the last major battles of the Second World War in the territory of Lithuania, the seizing of the town of Memel (now Klaipėda) took place between 1944–1945. Memel and Memelland had been under Nazi Germany control since 1939 and were only regained by the Soviet Army in 1945. Through the analysis of human remains found in this territory in 2002, 2008, and 2013, this case study is aimed at outlining the general biological profile of the soldiers, identifying any lesions related to the cause of death of these subjects, as well as assessing the attitudes of the living towards the deceased.
