Re: Genocide markers (was Google Earth)
- Hello Sally,
I really don't know the answer. But I know that in 2005 there was
done a wonderful work, similar to that mentioned by Andy. It was
sponsored by a British institute (If I don't have a mistake), and my
relative (living in Vilna) made the tours to all the towns and
townships and located the real sites (I saw his work when visiting
him in 2005). After this location work was done, the next step
should have been to put signs, direction arrows, and memorial
tablets at the old cemeteries and genocide sites. I really wonder if
anything was done about it since then.
Andy, I tried to find the pictures I sent to our site a year ago,
including the memorial stone at the genocide site, but couldn't find
it any more... Is it my mistake?
I wish a Happy New Year to all the Keidan members.

- Dear Keidaner List Members,
The Lost: A Search for Six of Six Million, by Daniel
Mendelsohn got great reviews in Sunday's NY Times'Book
Review and also in the NY Review of Books. Even though
Mendelsohn is looking for traces of Jewish life in
Ukraine rather than Lithuania, it seems that list
members would enjoy reading this book. -Lynn Lubamersky
