Does anyone speak Lithuanian here?

Because, I'd like to know what he's exactly saying. We all know how twisted interviews can get.


comment under video:
A former Lithuanian auxiliary policeman speaks of how he helped murder Jews during the Nazi occupation and what their fate was. He seems to think the 20 year prison sentence he received paid for his crime and does not appear to be very sorry for it.


Not sure, but it seems the footage was taken in 1997 - or released on that date. Assuming he may have been around 30 years in 1941. I guess that this may have been footage taken earlier.

Going by the English subtitles:

- It seems he is talking about legal executions, according to international law, of non-uniformed combatants, terrorists, aka: 'partisans', not "murder".

- Jews were numerous within that group, .... but they curiously avoided joining the Red Army.

- Children* were in fact communist members of that illegal body. So yes, they were subject to legal execution, as was done by all sides in WWII.

- Of course the communists would have sentenced him, he was working against them. Do note that he was not executed for "murder".

In spite of the dubbed in narration / propaganda, we have much ado about nothing.

If it can't happen as alleged, then it didn't.

Excellent finds Hanover. The facts around the Communist behavior prior to the German advance into Soviet-Occupied territory as well as the involvement of Jews are commonly ignored, although this is critical to understanding what would have been happening next. Same applies to the partisans and the Jewish involvement in that movement.

The person interviewed mentions that he witnessed against other Lithuanians to save his own life. But how old would you estimate him in that interview? The interview must have been made prior to 1997, because that was the year of its release.
