Lithuania’s president to visit Yad Vashem

Lithuania’s President Dalia Grybauskaite will visit Israel’s Holocaust commemoration museum Yad Vashem on Monday, the museum announces.

She will tour the Holocaust history museum, “participate in a memorial ceremony in the Hall of Remembrance, visit the Children’s Memorial and sign the Yad Vashem Guest Book,” the museum says in a statement.

Lithuania’s Jewish community experienced the most comprehensive annihilation of any other community, with an estimated 195,000 Jews being killed out of a pre-World War II community of some 210,000.
