Lithuanians Cooperate
On War Criminals

New York (JTA) — Faced
with a barrage of charges
that it is pardoning Nazi war
criminals, the Lithuanian
government has proposed
cooperating with Israel to
ensure that such criminals
not be pardoned.
Lithuanian President
Vytautas Landsbergis re-
portedly sent a letter to Dov
Shilansky, the speaker of
Israel's Knesset, who met
with the Lithuanian head of
state in June during a visit
to Vilnius.
At that time, the two
discussed a host of issues, in-
cluding Nazi war criminals,
according to Abraham
Bayer, director of interna-
tional concerns for the Na-
tional Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council.
Mr. Bayer said NJCRAC is
"consulting with the U.S.
Justice Department, the
Israeli Justice Department
and the (Israeli) Prime Min- .
ister's Office on Soviet
Jewry" on the matter.
Meetings have been held
with Lithuanian officials in
Washington, Chicago and
Los Angeles.
The Lithuanian president
also wrote a conciliatory
letter to Rep. Anthony
Beilinson, D-Calif., respon-
ding to his concern over a
report in last week's New
York Times that the Vilnius
government is pardoning
Lithuanian citizens who col-
laborated with the Nazis
during World War II.
Mr. Landsbergis told Mr.
Beilinson his government
intended to "exonerate only
those individuals whose only
transgression was to defend
the freedom and the lives of
their countrymen."
He reiterated that "the
Lithuanian government has
consistently stated that
there is no statute of limita-
tions for perpetrators of
crimes against humanity."
Mr. Landsbergis added
that "Lithuania is willing to
cooperate with those institu-
tions interested in examin-
ing cases of individuals con-
cerning whom there is cred-
ible evidence of participa-
tion" in war crimes.
Other congressional mem-
bers who have initiated cor-
respondence with Land-
sbergis on the matter in-
clude Mel Levine, D-Calif.,
Richard Durbin, D-El., and
Benjamin Cardin, D-Md.
In addition, Rep. Eliot
Engel, D-N.Y., asked U.S.
Secretary of State James
Baker to raise the matter
when he meets with Lithua-

nian leaders- in Vilnius this
week.
Reinforcing the Vilnius
government's word, the
Lithuanian Supreme Coun-
cil assured the U.S. Holo-
caust Memorial Council that
Nazi collaborators will not
be exonerated. The govern-
ment body told the Holo-
caust council that the "files
of any individual collab-
orators mistakenly exoner-
ated would be reopened and
investigated."
The Lithuanian govern-
ment admitted in a state-
ment that mistakes might
have been made, according
to a report by Reuters. It
said both the Lithuanian
and Israeli parliaments
could investigate cases of
purported Nazi war
criminals and "make it
possible to avoid mistakes
concerning rehabilitation."
The government said that
"not one person who can be
proven guilty of actions of
genocide of Jews or the
massacre of unarmed
civilians can be
rehabilitated."
But no response had yet
been received by the Los
Angeles- based Simon
Wiesenthal Center, whose
promptings and complaints
initiated the Times report.
Rabbi Abraham Cooper,
the Wiesenthal Center asso-
ciate dean, said that the
center was pleased to hear of
a proposed working relation-
ship between the Vilnius
government and Israel, but
noted that neither spe-
cializes in war crimes track-
ing.
"We suggest a kind of ad-
visory panel that would be
composed of (the director of
the U.S. Office of Special In-
vestigations) Neal Sher,
Simon Wiesenthal or some-
one from any one of the
Western governments who
have had experience in deal-
ing with the documents.
"There are existing and
finite lists of criminals, as
well as an existing and finite
list of those exonerated, we
understand. All that we
have to do is just compare
those lists," he said.
A report by Reuters claim-
ed that Vilnius will coop-
erate with the U.S. Justice
Department, and that there
have been moves by Justice
to send Lithuania a list of
some 2,000 convicted war
criminals to prevent their
rehabilitation. But a Justice
Department source said :
"We have not dealt with the
Lithuanians."
