“Antisemitism is alive and well among Lithuanians”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

My Lithuanian friend's first husband was Jewish and her son by her second husband got taunted by the kids at the Lithuanian school in Los Angeles for being Jewish even though it is through his half brother. This is way beyond disturbing to me. I found out about this through my son who is his friend. That this continues in our times within the USA is a horrible thing. I loved the tributes to the good people who saved Jews at risk to their own lives. The story of the mother pushing her infant out into the crowd to be saved by some stranger will never leave me.

“A Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

This is difficult to find and as other reviewers have said it is up a side alley off Pamenkalnio at the top of the bank. It is only a small museum but there are plenty of exhibits which tell of the awful atrocities that occurred and which must never be forgotten. A must see when in Vilnius.

“Very Sad But a Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

It is very necessary to come and see this exhibition just to understand the terrible vile evil things that happened. I volunteer for a jewish organisation in a day centre where people come for the day and are entertained and have activities a few of them have stories to tell but unfortunately will not share the terrible things they saw but one lady was on the kinda transport and freely spoke about it her mother was taken by the Nazis but her father was not jewish so was left he put his two young daughters on the kinda transport but she never saw him again as he was shot in the street a neighbour told her, she has now passed on a wonderful lady. I find it possible to visit all these places because it incomprehenable to imagine what happened, the pictures in the museum tell horrific stories it's hard to stop the tears, so everyone should visit when in Vilnius to pay their respects and never let this ever happen again.

“Excellent Holocaust Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

As I had read, this museum was a bit hard to find, but worth the effort. You cannot see it from the main street. The small street that it is on looks more like an alley. If you go up that little street it is on the right side and is set back a bit. Just before the street there is a brown Holocaust sign that points to the street.

My husband and I both thought that this museum was excellent. Most people know about the Holocaust in the Baltics, Ukraine, and surrounding countries, but they don't really know how it was done. It gives a big insight into the Einsatzgruppen.

“A Moving Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

The museum commemorates the victimisation and extermination of Jews in Lithuania and contain many photographs, letters, documents, edicts and proclamations relating to this. Not so easy to find on some maps.
