Isaakas Demantas passed away in late January. We have lost an amazingly sensitive and sincere friend. Orphaned by the Holocaust, he made his own way in life from the age of 13. An active member of the Jewish community and the Union of Former Ghetto and Concentration Camp inmates, he passed away at the age of 91.

Our deepest condolences to his soulmate Mina Frišman and sons Arkadijus and Vladimiras, to his grandchildren and to his friends Ieva and Monia who came to his aid when misfortune struck and Isaakas was hospitalized.
