Re: Jews deported to Siberia from Lithuania #lithuania

Hi Audrey,

In 1999, the Genocide & Resistance Research Center of Lithuania published the names and other information of about 30,000 Lithuanians repressed during the Soviet occupation, gathered from various sources. Of these, about 2600 were Jewish. Subsequently, Galina Zhirikova of the Lithuanian Holocaust Museum extracted the Jewish entries into a separate list, which is available online, in Lithuanian, at LitvakSIG, with permission, has translated the list of repressed Jews and added it to the All-Lithuania Database, which is free to all (search results for repressed Jews will be found under the Revision List category). Anyone who is a current donor to LitvakSIG can access the entire translated list, as an excel spreadsheet, through their login on the LitvakSIG website.
