On Friday 4th May the ground-breaking ceremony will take place in Šeduva, Lithuania, for The Lost Shtetl Museum and Memorial designed by Lahdelma & Mahlamäki Architects. The ceremony will mark the official start of on-site preparations for the construction of the 3000m2 museum, which will stand to remember and teach about life in what was a predominantly Jewish area – before local populations were decimated by the Holocaust, according to a press release from Lahdelma & Mahlamäki Architects.
