First Head of Lithuanian State and ex MEP Landsbergis denies Holocaust culpability of Noreika

The first post-Communist Lithuanian Head of States, Prof. Vytautas Landsbergis, has become the most decorated Holocaust obfuscator in the post-Soviet era. In his recent article, he says that those who followed German orders were not guilty since they did not create the orders. This is the Eichmann defense, which has been ruled invalid.

Professor Landsbergis is clearly attempting to absolve the Lithuanian Provisional Government, wherein his father was a Minister. The Provisional Government did nothing to protest the murder of Jews, which were often times carried out by the backbone of the Provisional Government, the members of the Lithuanian Activist Front.

His article and an English language translation are attached.
