Some here speaks about "Lithuanian guilt". They remind me of Raul Hilberg, who noticed once that most Jews don t even know history of the Holocaust. Some Lithuanians participated direcly to the Holocaust, other Lithuanians supported the Nazis because they liberated them from the Soviets, that's all you can say. Except if you are racist, of course. President Katsav visited Lithuania two years ago, and a Lithuanian prime minister formely visited Israel. Lithuanian president recognized guilt of Lithuanians in the Holocaust. Why should Arad be afraid of talking about what he did between 1943 and 1945 ? In some years there won t be any survivors, it s time to talk.
