"137346. C'est le nombre de Juifs assassinés en cinq mois par le colonel SS Karl Jäger, responsable des Einsatzgruppen de Lituanie. Dans un rapport glaçant, daté du 1er décembre 1941, ces meurtres sont consignés en détail. Jean Grégor, lorsqu'il découvre le rapport, refuse l'idée que des vies soient réduites à une ligne dans un document administratif. Il décide alors avec son père, Pierre Péan, de reconstituer le monde perdu de ces Juifs, englouti par la machine à broyer nazie. Partant de témoignages des descendants, des survivants, de souvenirs intimes, de photos et de lettres, ils cheminent entre l'histoire des victimes et celle des bourreaux, pour mieux appréhender ce moment unique de l'histoire du génocide des Juifs. Quelles étaient les motivations des assassins ? Dans quel plan dément se situent ces meurtres de masse ? Pourquoi l'histoire n'a-t-elle pas retenu ceux qui furent anéantis avant la mise en place de l'industrie de la mort symbolisée par Auschwitz? Telles sont les questions auxquelles père et fils tentent de répondre ensemble, interrogeant historiens, yiddishistes, procureurs, qui jouent tous ici le rôle de passeurs et de guides. C'est l'image d'un peuple amoureux des livres, des langues et de la culture qui revit, nous rappelant, de manière frappante, à quel point ces gens assassinés nous ressemblaient."--Page 4 of cover.

This book is an examination of why and how the elective principle, already established in Transylvanian and Polish political culture in the late medieval period, was transformed in the early elections of the 1570s. In this period, the two polities adopted constitutional arrangements different in depth and scope but based on the same fundamental principles: elective thrones, state-sanctioned religious pluralism, and constitutional guarantees for the right of disobedience. There were important variations in their regulation and application, but Transylvania and the newly created Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth had one essential thing in common: they were the only two polities in early modern Europe whose political systems secured the succession of their rulers through large-scale elections in which the dynastic principle, although still important, was not binding.

The report analyses the performance of Lithuania’s health system which has been long characterised by its institutional stability and the steady pursuit of a policy agenda aimed at adapting it to the evolving burden of disease. Today, even if total spending on health is low and out-of-pocket payments represent nearly a third of it, the system ensures fairly equitable access to care. The main challenge to the system is that health outcomes still place Lithuania among the lowest ranked in the OECD. Efforts need to be geared more systematically towards strengthening public health and improving the quality of the services delivered at primary and hospital care levels.

An extraordinary piece of international survival literature, joining the likes of Primo Levi and Anne Frank. In 1941, 14-year-old Dalia and her family are deported from their native Lithuania to a labour camp in Siberia. As the strongest member of her family she submits to twelve hours a day of manual labour. At the age of 21, she escapes the gulag and returns to Lithuania. She writes her memories on scraps of paper and buries them in the garden, fearing they might be discovered by the KGB. They are not found until 1991, four years after her death. This is the story Dalia buried. The immediacy of her writing bears witness not only to the suffering she endured but also the hope that sustained her. It is a Lithuanian tale that, like its author, beats the odds to survive. 'There is only one word to describe this book: Extraordinary. It blew me away when I first read it in German translation. Dalia's account goes far beyond a memoir. This is an outstanding piece of literature which should be read by anyone who wishes to understand the Soviet repression.' Meike Ziervogel, Peirene Press Publisher.
