The Lithuanian Government has attempted multiple forms of intimidation against me.
In the link attached below is my latest response to some of their intimidation.
The Lithuanian Government claims the attached 1975 letter “completely exonerates” Brazaitis and by extrapolation, Skirpa. They interpret this 1975 letter to mean that Brazaitis was “rehabilitated” by the US Justice Ministry”. The letter is clear in its meaning. Nowhere does it indicate what the Lithuanian Government claims it does. The claims by the Lithuanian Government constitute Holocaust fraud.
Attached below is a package submitted to the Lithuanian Government.
Page 1: The “1975 letter”
Pages 2-4: Communication from Lithuania’s Historical Institute. – This is a response to a question from a Member of Parliament regarding Brazaitis’s reburial in Lithuania, with a “finding” by two historians from the Lithuanian History Institute who are completely against the idea, they say the Provisional Government was only saved from being complete collaborators with the Nazis because they were dissolved so soon, that the PG carried out its own anti-Jewish isolation policies and that Brazaitis was eager in exile to hide what the Government he led did. The two historians conclude some International Commission for Historical Justice created by decree by Adamkus was completely undermined by Adamkus’s decision to award Brazaitis posthumously the Order of the Cross of Vytis.

There is no other term for this than fraud. This time, they used USA Congressional documents to perpetrate their fraud.
The translation of the page linked above where they claim he was “rehabilitated” is: “G.A.Gochin’s “investigation” of J.Noreika, without presenting solid evidence, possibly violating the Republic of Lithuania’s Constitution and the Republic of Lithuania’s Criminal Code, accuses many individuals: The Prime Minister Juozas Brazaitis of the Provisional Government, whose activity was investigated by request of the US Congress in 1975 and he was rehabilitated by the US Justice Ministry, political prisoner Viktoras Ašmenskas, and others (see point Nr.1 in the reply).”
The term “rehabilitated” in USA would only mean if he had been pardoned by the President. An absurd statement. Equally absurd as saying Congressional authorities “completely exonerated” Brazaitis. Skirpa is not mentioned in this letter but the Lithuanian Government declares him “completely exonerated” by extrapolation from this letter.
i.e. they are committing fraud and using intimidation tactics to silence me from exposing them. Note that the reference to Brazaitis was a peripheral item in the Noreika research, but that is how they distract from the submitted data.
Attached (link at bottom) is a letter from the Genocide and Resistance Research Centre of Lithuania (LGGRTC), who is the Government’s mouthpiece on the Holocaust. The letter (had it to be coherent) is almost self-explanatory, the implications are extraordinary.
If all war criminals that were not put on trial and convicted are innocent, then the Genocide Center is issuing a statement that Adolph Hitler is innocent of crimes against Lithuania and against Jews, as he was not put on trial and he was not convicted. Therefore, under the Constitutional provisions of presumption of innocence, he is absolutely innocent of crimes.
This letter confirms that foreign investigations are acceptable in Lithuania with no further examination, this standard alone is enough to declare Stalin and Hitler innocent.
Brazaitis was not “exonerated” and USA Congress does not investigate dead people, and so the investigation was stopped. The evidence was only found later. Therefore, by this standard contained in the Lithuanian governments letter, the Soviet authorities declared Stalin a hero, and any evidence of his crimes that were discovered after such declaration have no relevance – therefore, Lithuania recognizes Stalin’s hero stance. The fact that he was not convicted means permanent innocence. Lithuania has just re-written her own history through this letter from the Lithuanian Government.
The Genocide Center says we should obtain copies of evidence from the 40 institutions. However, when they previously suggested we do our own research on Noreika, they then said they reject it because they do not accept our researchers. The goalposts keep shifting according to the evidence provided.
They do not find trustworthy evidence that Skirpa was guilty, and they extrapolate that from Brazaitis being “exonerated”. So, by that standard, every single Soviet that was not put on trial and convicted is innocent. The Center issued lists of Lithuanians that collaborated with the Soviets; did they use that same legal standard with the names they published? Should we suggest to each family that those people on the list file a legal action against the Lithuanian Government and that the same standard of proof be used? Burauskaite opens massive litigation possibilities against the Lithuanian State via her statements that carry the official imprimatur of the Lithuanian Government.
Burauskaite also makes the mistake of stating that USA Immigration and Naturalization Service is part of the legislative branch. It is not and it does not answer to Congress – only the Executive Branch. Congress can’t “instruct” INS to perform any specific investigation. Burauskaite also ignores the FBI report that ties Skirpa was linked to Von Ribbentrop and Rosenberg, two of the worst Nazi’s that were executed at Nuremberg. Only convenient data is considered. By using the standard of accepting any convenient foreign government report as conclusive evidence, the Lithuanian Government has negated many of their own judicial decisions. Again, this offers any person negatively impacted by any foreign court decision the opportunity to re-litigate their cases in Lithuanian courts.
Using the Lithuanian Governments standards as indicated in this communication, almost every human rights perpetrator in history is innocent, including Josef Stalin and Adolf Hitler. Or, do the Genocide Centers standards only apply to Lithuanians that were perpetrators against Jews?
For those that have asked for details of the Government’s defense of Noreika, here it is, first in English translation, and then in the original Lithuanian.
The Court has now confirmed we are moving forward to oral arguments.
