Limmud FSU New York volunteers education session today with Ruta Vanagaite sponsored by Covenant Foundation. Ruta will be a presenter at the upcoming event on Sunday!
Ruta Vanagaite is a Lithuanian writer with a background in theater criticism and theater direction. Her third book, Mūsiškiai (Our People; Journey with an Enemy), co-authored with Efraim Zuroff, focused on the complicity of Lithuanians in Holocaust crimes and the efforts of all Lithuanian governments since independence to hide the role played by local Nazi collaborators. It has deeply affected public discourse on the participation of Lithuanians in the Holocaust and has inspired a search for truth on this subject among many young Lithuanians.
