אויך מיר אַ קאָנווענשאָן צענטער!

Oykh mir a konvenshon tsenter!

Don’t Lithuania’s citizens deserve a sparkling new convention center where they will be welcomed by leaders of the arts, entertainment, industry and statecraft, not by the ghosts of the thousands of Vilna Jewish citizens who lie buried on all four sides, in the city’s Old Jewish Cemetery, where their families purchased their burial plots in perpetuity? 

by VULOVAK for Defending History

Or, you can try the English version, but with the classic Litvak Yiddish ironic intonation:

This is what you call a convention center ?!?
