Abstract

The aim of this article is to discuss the of a double identity in the Klaipėda region in the first half of the twentieth century. The author develops the discussion around a few questions: how the Lithuanians who lived in Prussia adopted German values and social conventions by simultaneously maintaining their own language and identity; what political factors were influential in the development of identity of Prussia’s Lithuanians; how did the double identity of Lithuania Minor influence the Lithuanian self-understanding.
