Former Director of Yivo Speaks Out on Current Policies Concerning Lithuania

The comments on Dr. Efraim Zuroff’s 14 Oct. 2012 op-ed in The Times of Israel on Yivo’s current policies regarding Lithuanian issues include one (dated 15 Oct.) from Yivo’s former director, Professor Allan Nadler of Drew University. His comment:

Allan Nadler · Professor at Drew University

As former research director of Yivo, who spent many years negotiating with the Lithuanians — from former President Brazauskas (who was the only decent man I dealt with) to library and archive directors and their lackeys for the restoration of Yivo’s treasures that survived the Holocaust, it saddens me to see how low Yivo has sunken. This is a very disturbing trend on the part of Yivo. It sullies a great and important institution.
