The field of research of the Museum of the History of Little Lithuania includes the history of Klaipėda and the region up to the present day. The connection of Klaipėda region to Lithuania is one of the most important topics, widely presented in the museum's exhibitions, and more than one museum publication was published exploring it. In order to present this important historical event for the whole of Lithuania to the young generation, the idea of creating an interactive educational game was born.
Despite seven centuries of living in another country, the Lithuanians of Minor Lithuania, also known as Lithuanians, have preserved their identity and language. It was not by chance that Klaipėda region was the center of the Lithuanian language and culture, whose most famous representatives were M. Mažvydas, M. Jankus, Vydūnas and others. So the desire to unite Little and Great Lithuania was organic. The participants of the events of 1923 were patriotic and aware of the importance of the event. In the game "Klaipėda. 1923" historical narrative is presented by supplementing it with various tasks, copies of authentic documents, biographies of important historical figures, historical photographs from the history of Little Lithuania and other museum collections.
The mobile application is primarily intended for students in grades 9-12, who study topics related to this historical event in the educational program, but anyone interested in the history of their country can try their hand at it.
