Dear Community members,
This year we’ll mark the 80th anniversary of the onset of the Holocaust in Lithuania. The Lithuanian Jewish Community is creating a digital chronicle to help the broader public understand how Litvaks lived before the Holocaust and what happened to their communities beginning in 1941.
We are asking you to share the stories and photographs of your relatives who lived in the Lithuanian shtetls and died in the mass murders in 1941 or the years following.
Everyone is invited to participate by sending copies of photographs and short texts including biographies and descriptions of murders to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Please indicate the names of people in photographs, locations and dates if available.
