Lithuanian PM Meets American Jewish Committee International Jewish Affairs Director Rabbi Andrew Baker

Lithuanian Jewish Community chairwoman Faina Kukliansky and AJC international Jewish affairs director Rabbi Andrew Baker met Lithuanian prime minister Saulius Skvernelis and discussed current events and matters of interest to the Lithuanian Jewish Community. Rabbi Baker said Holocaust survivors are still facing the problem of restitution of lost property. LJC chairwoman Kukliansky called for the formation of a group of legal experts and the initiation of consultations while there are still living Holocaust survivors in order to solve the problem of property restitution to victims of the Nazi regime. Lithuanian legislation prevented many people from making claims to their property on time. PM Skvernelis listened attentively to suggestions on how to solve the complex problem of Jewish property restitution which chairwoman Kukliansky said need to be deliberated and solved.
