I would like to comment briefly on a press release which appeared on the webpage of the Lithuanian parliament on September 23.
My opinion about this resolution good in its entirety was shaken by the words “64 members of parliament voted unanimously.” De facto the word unanimously means the majority of representatives (77!!!) did not participate in the session dedicated to marking the Day of Genocide of Lithuanian Jews and the 80th anniversary of the beginning of the Holocaust in Lithuania.
Why they didn’t come to pay their respects on this tragic day of Lithuania’s history, I can only speculate.
The probability that all 77 had a justified reason not to attend is very small.
Did some of the representatives actually boycott this topic intentionally?
