That Lithuania is now “the most oppressed country in the world” and that “it is ruled by the Christian Democratic Party, headed by the Roman Catholic clergy and therefore pro-Polish, reactionary and anti-Semitic” is the charge made in the New York World by Casimir Pilenas, former director of Political Intelligence in Lithuania.

Kowno, he declares, is in the hands of “Jews and officials”.
