Can you imagine a small Lithuanian town named Ariogala on a snowy day hosting over a hundred schoolchildren from all over Lithuania performing scenes on the Holocaust? This year the event was dedicated to the tragic kids' stories.
For more than 20 years now the movement of creating Tolerance centers in Lithuanian schools is being consistently developed by sincerely devoted people: Ingrida Vilkiene and Ronaldas Racinskas, both representing the state-sponsored organization under the debatable title of the International Commission for the Evaluation of the Crimes of the Nazi and Soviet Occupation Regimes.
On January 22 professor and leading expert of many heritage protection projects Amon Bar Or invited to the mid-year presentation of his students Lavi Beery and Dan Iron at David Azrieli School of Architecture at TAU.
L. Beery and D. Iron have chosen to research the territory of Great Vilna Synagogue in order to commemorate and rehabilitate the site in the heart of Vilnius old town.
