A comment from Professor Pinchos Fridberg, Vilnius:

I can understand (not approve of!) those Lithuanian politicians who try to mitigate the scale of the crimes committed by their fellow countrymen during the Second World War. But I will never be able to understand Emanuelis Zingeris, a Lithuanian politician of Jewish origin, who has not publicly condemned the 2012 solemn reinterment of Professor Juozas Ambrazevičius-Brazaitis, head of the 1941 Nazi puppet government in Kaunas.

If Mr. Zingeris had a Jewish soul, he would have done that in the very first instance. After all, his mother was a prisoner of the Kaunas (Kovno) Ghetto – a ghetto that was established by the order of the above-mentioned Professor Ambrazevičius-Brazaitis.

I would invoke a favorite phrase of Professor Vytautas Landsbergis: “Who can deny that…?” and would pose this question:

“Who can deny that such behavior by Mr. Zingeris serves as a major promotion for Double Genocide?”
