      This may surprise you as it did me. Myra Sklarew received the email below from Rimantas Zirgulis, director of the Kedainiai Regional Museum, after she notified him of the planned commemorations in New York and Israel:

      Dear Prof. Sklarew,

      Thank You very much for information. Our museum with Kedainiai municipality also is going to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Holocaust. On August 28 we are planning commemoration ceremony for our lost co-citizens in Old Market square near complex of synagogues. About 23th of September we are going to unveil memorial near mass grave with family names which are known. We have more than 1000 names from 2076 jews of Kedainiai, Seta and Zeimiai were killed in our town on 28th August. So You are very welcome in Kedainiai to participate in commemoration of our Jewish community.

      With best wishes,
      Rimantas Zirgulis

      Apparently the museum is attempting to compile as many names as possible of those killed in the period leading up to and including Aug. 28. If anyone has information that could help, let me know and I'll pass it on to Mr. Zirgulis.
