Previous Lithuanian Government Conducted Pogrom Propaganda

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Astounding revelations of how the former Lithuanian government stimulated the anti-Semitic movement in Lithuania were published here by the Yiddish daily newspaper, “Kovno’er Stimme.”

The newspaper published a series of documents of the secret archive of the former clerical government from which it is evident that the government distributed pogrom literature, published falsified documents for the purpose of compromising the national minorities in Lithuania. Lithuanian Jews were charged in these government publications with being “the murderers of Christ” and the “enemies of Lithuania.”
