How young Lithuanians are making efforts at reconciliation and working at
preserving Jewish memories in a small shtetl in Lithuania.

Jo Ann will talk about her visit to Zagare (Zhager), a small town in Lithuania,
a stone's throw >from the border with Latvia. In 2015, a Jewish Culture Festival
was organized by two Lithuanians, who were supported and advised by descendents
of Jewish Zagareans in the planning. Jo Ann's presentation will be illustrated
with photos that she took there.
