Israeli Embassy in Lithuania awarded the Righteous Among the Nations

The Embassy of the State of Israel, together with the Lithuanian Jewish community and the Vilna Gaon Jewish State Museum, on a Day of remembrance of the Holocaust, this year marked on 16 April, awarded the Righteous Among the Nations. The State of Israel awarded six Lithuanian families, which in spite of the danger during the Second World War, saved Lithuanian Jewish people. The award ceremony was held in the Government's Office of the Republic of Lithuania.
