Motion text

That this House condemns the article in Lithunian magazine Veidas on 14 November 2010 entitled The International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg - the biggest legal farce in history; welcomes the letter of 26 November 2010 from the Polish Ambassador to Lithuania Janusz Skolimowski condemning the article; affirms the Ambassador's position that the statements of P. Stankeras contained in the article, which undermined the fact of the extermination of Jews during World War II and raised doubts about the historic importance of the Nuremberg Trials, should be met with the highest condemnation; notes the Ambassador's statement that he found it particularly painful that such statements which denied the historical nature of the Holocaust were being formulated inthe part of Europe which was a witness to this tragedy and his further statement that the responsibility for the truthfulness of the historic legacy passed to subsequent generations demanded greater caution in undertaking discussions in the press; and endorses both Poland and Lithuania's work on the Task Force for International Cooperation on Holocaust Education, Remembrance and Research.
