My name is Chuck Barnes and I'm a U.S. Peace Corps
Volunteer working at the Alytus Tourist Information
Center in Alytus, Lithuania. One of the projects
I'm working on is a pamphlet on the Jewish history
in Alytus. This pamphlet is being written both to
tell the story of the Jews of Alytus but also hoping
to develop tourism in Alytus. Alytus has a great old
Synagogue, a old cemetery and a monument to the Jews
killed here during WW2. I have not been able to find
any information on the Synagogue. If you have any
information on are Synagogue or the Jews of Alytus
I would appreciate the help.
