Welcome to Shtetl Shkud, the website dedicated to the memory of the once-vibrant and thriving Jewish community of Skuodas, Lithuania – a community which came to a tragic end shortly after the outbreak of World War II in Lithuania, in June, 1941.

This site attempts to recreate the history of this community, drawing on documentary evidence, histories, photos, genealogies, interviews, and the memories of former Jewish and non-Jewish residents of Skuodas and their descendants. It is a work in progress.

To contribute to this site or for more information, please contact us.
