Dec 13, 2020 — 


Lithuania's Government is considering whether or not to spend 27 million euros on an abominable convention center project right in the middle of the Old Vilna Jewish Cemetery.  

If you can, please email Lithuania's government  (at: LRVkanceliarija@lrv.lt) to tell them politely what you think.

For those of you who have ancestors in Lithuania, thanks to the work of
our colleague Dr. Andrius Kulikauskas, you can now easily write to the
actual member of Parliament for your own ancestral town. See:
