he Office of Special Investi-

gations, the Justice Depart-
ment agency charged with
finding and prosecuting
Nazi war criminals, has an-
nounced two high-profile cases
that could deport alleged Nazi col-
laborators who concealed their
pasts when entering this country.
In both cases, legal action be-
came possible after OSI obtained
long-unavailable government doc-
uments from Lithuanian
archives.
In what they called the
agency's most important case in
several years, OSI lawyers have
accused Aleksandras Lileikis, an
87-year-old resident of Norwood,
Mass., of heading the Nazi-spon-
sored Lithuanian Security Police
for Vilnius. Nazis killed at least
55,000 of Vilnius' Jews.
The OSI complaint alleges that
from August 1941 to July 1944,
Mr. Lileikis was "personally re-
sponsible for the arrest, detention
and execution ofJews, those who
aided Jews, suspected commu-
nists and other civilians."
The government also moved to
revoke the citizenship of Juozas
Budreika, 77, a retired cook liv-
ing in Gulfport, Fla., who applied
to immigrate to the United States
m
in 1958 and became a U.S. citi-
to
zen in 1967.

Mr. Budreika, according to OSI,

group controlled by the Nazis that

Lithuania and Byelorussia.

According to OSI, Mr. Lileikis

left a paper trail documenting his
misdeeds in the form of signed or-
ders for the arrest ofJews. Many

At a news conference, acting
OSI director Eli Rosenbaum de-
scribed two of the Vilnius victims
— 6-year-old Fruma Kaplan and
her mother, Gita. Arrested for
z fleeing the Jewish ghetto, they
were ultimately executed. Orders

covered by OSI investigators sug-

gest that he played a significant

role in their fate.
Mr. Lileikis applied for admis-
w
sion to this country as an immi-

m
grant in 1955, and gained his
z

citizenship in 1976. Government
z
m
action to revoke his citizenship is
based on allegations that he con-
C
z cealed his Nazi past upon enter-
ing this country.

"This is a person who was sig-

nificantly involved in the fate that
befell many, many Jews in Vil-
nius," Mr. Rosenbaum said in an
interview. "This case involves
someone who was operating at a
high level in the hierarchy of per-
secution."
The Lileikis case, he said,
strikes a particularly sensitive
nerve because of Vilnius' impor-
tance in pre-war Jewish life.
"It was," he said, "one of the
three pre-eminent cities in the
world, in terms of Jewish culture,
scholarship, religious life, intel-
lectual life and Zionist activity.
The destruction of its Jewish com-
munity was a particularly tragic
event."
The two high-profile cases rep-
resent something of a turnabout
for the underfunded, understaffed
agency. "All of us expected that
by 1994 ... [OSI activity] would be
winding down," Mr. Rosenbaum
said. "Indeed, that was the pat-
tern we had been seeing since the
mid-1980s. But it has shot up in
the past two years. We're now fil-
ing cases at the fastest pace in our
history."

The new
prosecutions
may help remove
the shadow cast over

The primary reason, he said,
is the dissolution of the Soviet
Union and the opening of gov-
ernment archives throughout
central and eastern Europe to of-
ficial Nazi hunters from the West.
It was that kind of information
that provided the basis for last
week's actions in the Lileikis and
Budreika cases.
But there are concerns in
Washington that a shrinking OSI
may not have the resources to
take full advantage of this sud-
den wealth of information.
OSI presently is investigating
at least 300 people. As investiga-
tors slowly peruse newly opened
state archives, that number could
shoot up.
But OSI's staff has decreased
from a peak of 50 in the 1980s to
its current level of 32. This is not
enough, say some observers, to
take full advantage of the newly
available records.
