MFA’s comment on the statement by the European Jewish Congress

Created: 2017.11.01 / Updated: 2017.11.03 14:55

Lithuania has been engaged in investigating and educating about the Holocaust for many years already by consulting international Jewish organisations, the World Jewish Congress and the European Jewish Congress among them.

Counterposing the genocide of Jews and Lithuanian anti-Soviet resistance is not acceptable in this context as it serves the only purpose of distorting history.

The MFA regrets the statement of the European Jewish Congress.
