Lithuanian officials will investigate a newspaper in western Lithuania for publishing an anti- Semitic forgery. The Zemaitijos Parlamentas paper currently is publishing the infamous “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” in serial form. Publisher Justinas Burba said he decided to reprint “The Protocols,” which purports to be a work depicting an international Jewish conspiracy to rule the world, in response to public demand from Lithuanians sick of Jewish “blackmail” over the Holocaust. “Let the people know the history” by reading “The Protocols,” Burba said.
