Lithuanian Nazi war criminals

Jerusalem - May-99 - The Simon Wiesenthal Center urged Lithuanian president Valdas Adamkus to use his influence to ensure that Lithuanian Nazi war criminals who return to that country from the United States will be prosecuted for their crimes during World War II. In a letter sent by Israel director Dr. Efraim Zuroff in the wake of the return to Lithuania this past weekend of Nazi murderer Kazys Ciurinskas, the Center noted that none of the six Lithuanian Nazi collaborators who have hereto returned to Lithuania after being stripped of their American citizenship for concealing their wartime past have been prosecuted, and that with the arrival of Ciuriniskas and an additional criminal named Vincas Valkavickas who was due to arrive before the end of June it had become "increasingly clear that Lithuania has become one of the leading havens for Nazi collaborators seeking to escape justice."

In Zuroff’s words: "The prosecution of Nazi murderers more than fifty years after their crimes were committed is hardly an easy task. At the same time, I am certain you will agree that such crimes cannot be ignored nor can their perpetrators be allowed to escape punishment simply because they have eluded justice to date.

"Without your active intervention on this issue, I fear that no action will be taken. Individuals who actively participated in the brutal liquidation of Lithuanian Jewry, as well as of Jews outside Lithuania, will continue to reside in your country undisturbed and unpunished and Lithuania will suffer the inevitable consequences of this morally reprehensible policy.

"All the expressions of sorrow about the Holocaust and the efforts at reconciliation between Lithuanians and Jews ring hollow in view of Lithuania’s total failure to prosecute those responsible for these crimes. We therefore urge you to use your good offices to finally help achieve at least a measure of justice in these cases, and thereby lay the foundation for improved Lithuanian-Jewish relations in the future."


Kazy Ciurinskas served as an armed member of the 2nd Lithuanian Auxiliary Police Battalion which participated in the murder of tens of thousands of Jews in Lithuania and Belarus. He was ordered deported from the United States by U.S. immigration judge Anthony Petrone on April 15, 1999.

Vincas Valkavickas, who served as an armed guard during the massacre of more than 3,700 Jews near Svencionys, Lithuania, was ordered removed from the United States to Lithuania by U.S. Immigration Judge James Fujimuto on April 2, 1999.
