A Young Persons’ Guide to Lithuania’s Vanished Litvak Communities

As part of Lithuania’s centenary independence celebrations next year, throughout 2017 the International Centre for Litvak Photography will be working with 50 secondary schools around the country as part of an ambitious educational project to publish a unique e-book about Lithuania’s sadly forgotten Litvak history, heritage and culture. Designed to begin breaking Lithuania’s dominant Holocaust taboo and to encourage the next generation of the country’s leaders and decision makers to start dealing with this difficult subject, follow our exploits over the next 12 months as the project (and the e-book) progresses on our 50 Schools Facebook page.

Working with young people in Lithuania is extremely important. If you don’t believe us, take a look at the Holocaust Selfies page here.
