Digital Event: Our People
Simon Wiesenthal Center Chief Nazi Hunter and Director of the SWC’s Israel office, Dr. Efraim Zuroff and Rūta Vanagaité, one of Lithuania's most popular public personalities and the successful author of numerous best sellers, discuss their book, Our People: Discovering Lithuania’s Hidden Holocaust.
This compelling book traces the quest for the truth about the Holocaust in Lithuania by two ostensible enemies: Rūta a descendant of the perpetrators, Efraim a descendant of the victims.
