Lithuania President - Valdas Adamkus

Your Excellency President Moshe Katsav, Chairman Avner Shalev, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen, I deeply thank you for the privilege of taking part in this highly significant event. This new museum puts man face-to-face with conscience and with history. 

The 20th century always will be also remembered for human sufferings and lost lives. No other nation has faced greater losses that befell the European Jewish communities. The Jews of Europe had fallen victim to the downfall of civilization and culture which had brought the Third Reich to barbaric racism.
