For Lithuanian Jews killed in years 1941-1944
The names are too small to read and the image in too low resolution to zoom in. Please scan the picture in higher resolution and post again or send directly to elyaemma@gmail.com

7/1/2013 2:14 PM Just a small addition regarding the translation of "Shavli (Siauliai) and Kreiz": Kreiz is not the name of a place but the Yiddish word for "county".

Hope this has helped you some more.
7/3/2013 12:39 AM At the end of the list, the Lithuanian names for the two towns are Vandziogala and Babtai.
