Foreign archaeologists and geophysical research team visit to Tolerance Center

Purpose of the meeting: introduction and discussion of further cooperation opportunities.

It should be noted that foreign researchers are working not only in Paneriai. Together with Lithuanian archaeologists (supervised by Zenonas Baubonis) next week they will begin archeological excavations in the place of Great Vilnius synagogue, that was demolished by Nazis and Soviets. The geophysical survey in Paneriai memorial will be finished this week.

The method of survey and preliminary results of both investigations will be presented in Tolerance center next week, 22nd of June, 16.00 h.. The detailed information concerning the presentation will be announced later this week.
