Zachor. Remember.

Travel Programs from Lithuanian Public Television -
Visiting Seventeen Jewish Shtetls

“Zachor. Remember.” is a series of programs produced by the Lithuanian National Radio and Television (in Lithuanian: Lietuvos nacionalinis radijas ir televizija), a non-profit public broadcaster in Lithuania. The year 2020 had been declared The Year of the Vilna Gaon and Lithuanian Jewish History. Because of the pandemic, most traveling was done from a comfortable chair at home, watching television.

The shows feature two actors, Dovilė Kundrotaitė and Marius Povilas Elijas Martynenko, visiting 17 towns in Lithuania to celebrate the Year of the Gaon. The target audience is young Lithuanians, and the goal is to share information about the rich, cultural life of the Jewish community.

The programs have been archived by LRT, and you can watch them on your own computer.
