Abstract: A concern with preserving Lithuanianism in the diaspora compels constant reflection on the lessons that Lithuanian history and culture might teach the younger generation. This problem is more acute in the diaspora because the gap separating young and old is measured in a community’s denationalization and disappearance. Questions such as Who am I?, Why am I what I am?, and Why do I have to be this way? become the main objects of contention between the generations. The article analyzes what some Lithuanians who settled in Canada after World War II thought about inter-generational relations as reflected in discussions that took place in the 1960s on the future of the Lithuanian community and the maintenance of a Lithuanian identity among youth. The main source of information is the weekly newspaper Tėviškės žiburiai (and its youth section Jaunimo žiburiai) published from 1949 onwards in Toronto, Missisauga, by the Lithuanian Canadian Catholic society Žiburiai
