The Lost Shtetl Museum will present the history, culture, religion, folklore, and daily life of the Jews of Lithuania’s shtetls and their relations with their neighbors – an entire way of life that ended in Eastern Europe after the war. The museum’s exploration of daily shtetl life is based on the many stories of the Jews of Šeduva.
Jewish cemetery and holocaust sites
To Remember the Lost Community
Some Šeduva Jews rest in the Jewish cemetery established on the edge of town, where Jews were buried until World War II. Most of the Jews who lived in Šeduva between the two World Wars, however, are buried at killing sites in the forests of Liaudiškės and Pakuteniai, just outside Šeduva.
The main mission of our educational program is to arouse curiosity, develop understanding, and enable empathy. Our educational activities will cover various topics relating to history, tolerance, and diversity in workshops organized in schools, libraries, cultural centers, and virtual platforms across Lithuania.
