Farewell to Ambassador Herman
On June 11 the Vilnius Yiddish Institute invited all its friends to the concert Songs of the Stateless Cultures of Lithuania performed by Dr. Maria Krupoves Berg (Vilnius Yiddish Institute, Vilnius University) and Steponas Aleksandravicius (Lithuanian Roma Community, Kaunas).
The evening seminar was a farewell tribute to the Canadian Ambassador to Lithuania Brian Herman, which took the form of a lively public dialogue between Ambassador Herman and VYI academic staff on various issues in Jewish heritage in Lithuania today.
The Institute was happy to collaborate with Mr. Brian Herman during his three years of diplomatic service in Lithuania and now wishes him all the best in his endeavors.
