Lithuania investigates crimes committed by Jewish partisans


A judicial inquiry into the wartime activities of Jewish anti-Nazi resistance fighters in Lithuania has led to accusations that the small Baltic state is trying to distort the history of World War II.
This spring prosecutors questioned 86-year-old Fania Brantsovskaya, who still lives in Lithuania, about the role her partisan brigade played in an alleged massacre of 38 civilians in the village of Kaniukai in south-eastern Lithuania in January 1944.
Lithuania insists, however, that the judiciary works independently of the government, and the inquiry continues.
Such a cynism.
