An International Commission investigating crimes committed by the Nazi and Soviet regimes in Lithuania concluded and agreement on cooperation with the Ministry of Education and Science on Friday.
The agreement was signed by the chairman of the Commission, Emanuelis Zingeris, and the Minister of Education and Science, Kornelijus Platelis.
The agreement stipulates that the Commission and the ministry should cooperate closely in compiling text-books for various Lithuanian schools and in spreading the information on crimes committed by the Soviet occupation in Lithuania and the Holocaust of Jews under the Nazi regime across the curriculum.
This is the fourth such agreement on cooperation signed by the commission set up by President Valdas Adamkus.
