During most of the 19th century, the population was mostly Jewish. After World War I, however, the community was smaller. In 1926, 2,226 Jews lived in Raseiniai, over 40% of the whole population.

The Bavarian cavalry division swept through Raseiniai on 14 April 1915, en route to Šiauliai. Refugees appeared in Šiauliai on the morning of the 15th warning of the German advance.
