Time of Truth Ruta Vanagaite

The Time of Truth

Ruta Vanagaite, author of the book that shook Lithuania - "Our People" is continuing the fight to tell the truth about the Holocaust in her country. This time she teamed up with a world-famous Holocaust historian Dr Christoph Dieckmann. A 300 page book under the title "... And Their Local Helpers" is almost ready. Yet, due to its' content it is unlikely that it will see the light of day in Lithuania. We need your help to raise funds in order to get this unprecedented work independently published.

Since we started campaign in Australia, money cannot be withdrawn overseas. Hence our plan is, Elena Green (myself) will  withdraw money monthly to my private account in Australia and then perform bank transfer to Ruta overseas, with first withdrawal going directly to Dr. Christoph Dieckmann. Both bank accounts for Dr. Christoph (German bank account) and Ruta Vanagaite (Israel bank account(  have been supplied to Elena Green. 

Over 100 donors contributed to our campaign so far, donations ranging from $10 to $2,000. We are grateful for all the support. 

Please help us reach our goal, every donation counts. This story has to be heard, acknowledged and actioned upon in Lithuania. Ruta is an incredible fearless  human being, with passion, drive and courage of conviction to see it through and get her book “...And their local helpers” published.

Thank you,

Elena
