Remembering Litvaks, Inc.
Shortly after Lithuania became free of the Soviet Union, Janina Kubilienė, an inspired teacher of history in Ponedel / Pandėlys, began an initiative to learn about the history of the Jewish communities in the area of that town.
In March 2017, Remembering Litvaks, Inc., invited Lithuanian architect Aurimas Širvys to speak to American audiences about his work on projects to restore the condition of surviving structures of synagogues in Lithuania and creating images of lost synagogue buildings.
In March 2017, the Rokikis Regional Museum’s historian, Giedrius Kujelis, notified us that several Holocaust massacre sites in the Rokiškis region are known to local residents but have never been formally identified, let alone marked and placed under legal protection.
