Unpleasant discovery

Lithuanian electrical substation made of tombstones from Jewish cemetery.

“Lithuania's once-vibrant Jewish community was nearly annihilated by the Nazis and the few who survived found little sympathy from their new communist rulers.

"’Hitler wanted to destroy Jews physically,’ said Simonas Gurevicius, whose family escaped the Holocaust by fleeing to Russia and returned to Lithuania after the war. ‘Stalin came, and he wanted to destroy the whole memory of the Jewish people, making sure that nothing will stay.’"

”More than 90 percent of Lithuania's prewar Jewish population of 240,000 was killed.”
