Vilnius “Genocide Center” Defends Legacy of Holocaust Collaborator


Lithuania’s State Sponsored “Genocide Center” Goes to Court to Defend Legacy of Notorious Holocaust Collaborator

The Question: Does a vibrant and successful EU/NATO democracy really need expensive far-right history “fixing” units that adore Nazi collaborators,  stifle free debate of history and ethics, promote ultranationalism, and do untold damage to the country?

Defending History’s Evaldas Balčiūnas exposed Noreika to the English speaking world in 2012. His articles on Noreika and other “heroes” implicated in the Holocaust resulted in years of harassment and legal proceedings against him. Scroll down to 2014 in the Evaldas Balčiūnas section
