Eyewitness accounts of previous years’ marches
Can Things Be Different This Year?
WILL LITHUANIA’S LEADERS SPEAK OUT AGAINST GRANTING MAJOR CITY CENTERS ON INDEPENDENCE DAYS TO NEO-NAZI MARCHES THAT ADULATE1941 HOLOCAUST COLLABORATORS?
WILL “BAGEL SHOP” AND OTHER FUNDED MONITORS ISSUE A MORALLY CLEAR STATEMENT? A MEMBER OF THE JEWISH COMMUNITY SPEAKS OUT; HIS EARLIER VIDEOTAPED INTERVIEW IN RICHARD BLOOM’S DOCUMENTARY.
Annual marches (since 2008) slated for Kaunas on February 16th and Vilnius on March 11th. For years, one of neo-Nazi march’s main organizers was a high official at the “Genocide Center” …
Last year’s events in Kaunas and Vilnius included swastikas, fascist and white-power symbols and huge banners glorifying the 1941 Nazi puppet prime minister who signed papers confirming the transfer of his city’s Jews to a death camp and ghetto
“BUT THE VAST MAJORITY OF LITHUANIA’S PEOPLE DO NOT WANT CHERISHED NATIONAL INDEPENDENCE DAYS HIJACKED BY THE NEO-NAZIS IN MAJOR CITY CENTERS. A TIME TO SPEAK UP?”
Very Sad for Kaunas…
The city’s prestigious university, Vytautas Magnus University, continues tohost a shrine(bas-relief and lecture hall name) to the 1941 Nazi puppet who collaborated in sending his fellow citizens of Jewish ethnicity to a death camp and the Kovno Ghetto. What message does this send to today’s students? To the neo-Nazi marchers who carry banners of the same “hero”?
