The ongoing Lithuanian Names Project that this publication is based on has
collected lists of names, >from the main cities of Vilna and Kovno, and from
many other mass murder areas. These record many thousands of Lithuanian men, women and children who were murdered during the Nazi Occupation of
Lithuania, in or near the Shtetlach, in the Ghettos or work camps, in
concentration camps and places outside Lithuania. The book provides
background material to the Lithuanian Holocaust. Dr Stephen D. Smith, of
Beth Shalom Holocaust Center, Nottingham writes a moving introduction on the importance of names in perpetuating Holocaust memory.
