Each session will include a half-hour presentation in English
followed by responses>from a panel of 1-2 invited respondents. The floor
is then open for questions and discussions.

Over the last three years, Beth Shalom has seen quite a remarkable
period of growth, development and vision. Visitors to the centre
continue to come, with approximately 400 visitors a week attending the
centre. Still over two-thirds are young people in full-time education.
However,there are also many exciting things happening further afield.

This year, we are pleased to invite you to hear a special team of
people working in Lithuania. Over the last two years, we have been
privileged to be working in partnership towards introducing education on
the Holocaust with Dr Irena Veisaite and colleagues at the Open society
Fund, as well as with advisors and academics working in the field.
Their dedication and commitment have brought about a new openess to
discussion and education in Lithuania.

Please do join us for these important two days. We are certain
this meeting will be of mutual benefit to all.
