Abstract

This index lists items related to the HELLP or Help the Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian Peoples Association and the Lithuanian Studies Association. HELLP was
formed in Hobart in September 1974 to make people aware of the Estonian, Latvian
and Lithuanian nations continuing struggle for survival and self determination and to
press for a reversal of the Australian Government’s recognition of Russian sovereignty
over them. Annual ecumenical services and vigils were held. and social functions etc to
raise money. Baltic News was published quarterly from March 1975 with news of
the persecution, prisoners of conscience etc. It was edited by Algimantas Taskunas, of
the University's administrative staff, and ceased publication in December 1990 after
the easing of Soviet control of the Baltic States.
The Lithuanian Studies Society of the Tasmania University Union was formed
in 1987 by a small group of students to make Australians more aware of Lithuania and
its heritage. Films and lectures on Lithuanian topics are presented regularly during
term and workshops to demonstrate traditional Lithuanian crafts. Academic papers
from these activities are published annually in the Society's journal, Lithuanian Papers.
The foundation President of the Society was Liz Watchorn, followed by Simon
Taskunas. The Society's logo is the black iron wolf of Vilnius. From University Collection UT22.
