There were three of us at the tower that night: my brother, Romas Zaronskis, Danguolė Zablockaitė, my cousin from Kaunas, and I, Jūratė Tarnašauskienė. There were a lot of people by the place where the tourists go into the tower. Everybody was singing and dancing. The door to the underground entrance of the tower was barricaded by concrete blocks. People were singing there as well.
People were urged to gather around the tower because tanks were coming. People immediately joined hands and made several circles around the tower. The men told the women to go to the rows in back.
