Speech by the Prime Minister of Lithuania Ingrida Šimonytė at the conference „A Divisive Past: The Soviet-German War and Narratives of Mass Violence in East Central Europe”.
The conference was dedicated to the memory of the recently deceased Literature Professor Irena Veisaitė.
‘What helped me keep moving forward after I managed to miraculously survive the war, was my resolute desire to tell the world what really happened. However, it seemed that no one was willing to hear about the horrific experience that I and other people had to go through. And thus bringing up the subject was completely pointless’, said survivor of the Holocaust, Professor Irena Veisaitė, in whose memory this conference is dedicated, in a book co-authored with historian Aurimas Švedas.
