Lithuanians in Uruguay
Lithuanians migrated to Uruguay mostly during the 1920s and 1930s; they eventually reached the 10,000-people-mark. They established their own institutions, such as the Uruguay-Lithuania Cultural Association and several Lithuanian-language newspapers, notably Naujoji Banga.
There is also a small Lithuanian Jewish community in Montevideo.
The 2011 Uruguayan census revealed 104 people who declared Lithuania as their country of birth.
