Five years ago, as a citizen, and a Lithuanan, in the course of an online discussion with Grant Gochin, a Lithuanian Jew in California, about the responsibility of Lithuanians for the Holocaust, I came to doubt what I thought I knew. I share with you a method that I developed for investigating personal responsibility for a social calamity, such as the murder in 1941 of practically all of the Jewish men, women and children in Lithuania's towns.

Often, it is supposed, that either some person with great power sets in motion a social calamity, or otherwise it is the unintentional product of happenstance or anonymous social forces. I develop an alternative view where a calamity can result from even a minor character's personal leadership of social forces, but depends on that individual's persistent learning, and thus must be purposefully intentional. A person must not simply stand in the right place at the right time, but must actively and willfully go and stay there to pull on the relevant system of levers.

Primary responsibility for a social calamity can be assigned to the champions who pull it together by wishing, recruiting and justifying. Secondary responsibility can be assigned to those opportunists who support some part of that learning cycle. They are not sacrificing themselves for a cause, but rather participate for ulterior motives, such as advancing their careers, satisfying perverse pleasures or personally profiting. Certainly they participate voluntarily, for it is not possible to force one to exercise creativity, as in organizing others. In Lithuania, the handful of champions were supported by a pyramid of such opportunists, with dozens of organizers, hundreds of messengers, thousands of killers, tens of thousands who appropriated Jewish property or bought or sold it, and hundreds of thousands who snitched on neighbors who might be hiding Jews.

Hitler is certainly responsible for the overall tragedy of World War II and the Holocaust. Yet, personally, he seems to have devoted his creative energies to military planning, resettling Crimea, and architectural fantasies, rather than tormenting Jews. He did believe in "the intoxication of murder" and he was a champion of murderous eugenics. But, pragmatically, in his racial caste system, it was useful to have Jews, because everybody needed somebody to look down on and somebody to look up to. Central to his vision was hating and punishing Jews and eliminating them from Europe. Yet Lithuania's champions of genocide may have opened up the possibility of killing them all, which then became a necessity, if Hitler was to be the most ruthless of all.

Society endures calamities which are so horrendous, complex and chaotic that it seems no person could be responsible for them. Even so, I can investigate, for example, how responsible were my fellow Lithuanians for the Holocaust? According to historians, it was only in September, 1941, that Adolf Hitler decided to kill all of the Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe. By that time, one-third of all Jews in Lithuania had already been killed. A moral analysis distinguishes three degrees of personal responsibility: champions, opportunists and slaves. A major event such as a genocide requires a champion who risks and sacrifices all they have for the sake of this goal; who learns by a cycle of taking a stand, following through and reflecting; and who draws others into this cycle by wishing, recruiting and articulating. In Lithuania, such champions of genocide were police officer Vytautas Reivytis, double agent Ričardas Šveiceris, and air force pilot Jonas Pyragius. They were supported by dozens of opportunists who supported only part of this learning cycle - wishing, recruiting or articulating - and who participated for ulterior motives, such as advancing their careers. They certainly participated voluntarily, for it is not possible to force one to exercise creativity, as in organizing others. Slaves are those who are forced to commit crimes. But even slaves can show good will. We can likewise investigate today who is personally creating our financial, environmental and political crises.

In studying the origins of the Holocaust in Lithuania, we have shown how to consider personal responsibility for such a social calamity. We can likewise investigate today who is personally creating our financial, environmental and political crises.





Hitler - responsible for T4 - his belief in murderous eugenics; his sensitivity to what is politically possible; role of Jews in racial caste system; making money from Jewish emigration; not feeding Jews in East; testament of eradication of Jews; lack of creativity on Jewish issues; pornographic interest in Jewish suffering; willingness of solving by emigration to Madagascar, Lublin, Siberia; defeating Bolshevikism; taking credit for killing the Jews (?); last testament: focus on Jews, and his resolve that they should "pay for it"; focus on punishment of Jews rather than their elimination; elimination is not enough - but must be punished so that they feel remorse; push Jews outside of Europe; "the intoxication of murder".


He didn't believe Germans could kill women and children even as Lithuanians were proving that they could.

But many SS trained at Pretzsch supposed they would be invading Britain, and not all of their ruthless leaders were psychologically prepared to kill women and children. I

Stahlecker was a competitor to Heydrich

* who was psychologically prepared
* condider the rising baselines and who set them and investigate below how they changed

* Criteria for those who are insisting, recruiting, articulating, sacrificing or not, and with ambition, although not necessarily power, to "get things done".
* History has a different standard than criminal investigation - can use a process of elimination - the purpose is to learn, to make sense of the truth.
* Secondary responsibility.
* Ternary responsibility.
* The pyramid of responsiblity.
* Responsibility for one's culture - one's nation or religion - that one chooses to belong to and draw from.
* Responsibility for updraft.




* Jonas Pyragius
** Mūsų vyrai baliavojo... Visi laiptai smirdėjo. Tikra kiaulystė. Pyragius "špičiavo". Negirdėjau. Esą jo motina išvežta, jis kenčiąs už 1/50,000 dalį išvežtųjų, Cartagina (Sov[ietų] S[ąjunga]) turi būti sugriauta. Tiek. Jo kalba buvo labai šaltai priimta. Šimkus kalbėjo vis, kad reikia vesti realią politiką. (1941.12.18 Blynas)

Alternative theories - "chaos happens"; there are so many crazy endeavors out there and only one of them needs to actually happen. But the endeavors that do happen are actually very simple (like kill the Jews). In any event, it is very constructive, instructive to show who can actually be found responsible, to be looking for them and learning from what happened. We need to be careful that there could have been many such people, but simply some are more visible. Or as with Hitler - on a different time scale is responsible - put into place Himmler, Heydrich - and made the final decision - but after Lithuania.

Interactions

grammar of responsibility

Profiles:
*
* Himmler - warrior farmers - goal of having 20 to 30 million Slavs and Jews perish from "military action and crises of food supply".
* Heydrich - as evident from Poland - subjugation of people by decapitation (of intellectual leaders). Upset by people (Franz Six) who left the Einsatzgruppen, though they were able to do so.
* Lohse
* Executioners - Jaeger, Jeckeln - did not know of the job, were simply brought in.

Timeline:
* December, 1940. Madagascar plan fading. Plans made to deport Jews from Europe after the war.
* March 17, 1941. General Franz Halder's diary. Hitler's decision that it would be a war not keeping to international law; kill the intelligentsia put in by Stalin; kill all comissars and Jewish communists.
* Einsatzgruppe's set up - leaders handpicked by Heydrich and Himmler. Heydrich was the initiator of the Einsatzgruppen, the purpose of which was to promptly establish totalitarian control within a country. In Poland, the Einsatzgruppen were disbanded on September 20, 1939. He negotiated the role of the Einsatzgruppen with Eduard Wagner of the army. (March 26, 1941)
* Pretzsch school for 3,000 members of Einsatzgruppen operated in May and June 1941 (three weeks?). Heydrich indicates that Jews will be shot as well. But the members were not told where they were deployed, and many assumed they would be operating in England, where there were few Jews.
* June 6, 1941 - confirmation in the army that Communist political commissars would be executed as such.
* June 22, 1941 - Death to Jews, Communists, Commissars - Ukraine radio.
* July 1, 1941 - Heydrich forbade actions against Polish intelligentsia (which Lithuanians wanted) because they could be expected to be anti-Communist and anti-Jewish - and could initiate pogroms (thus presumably Heydrich's idea.). (His complete pragmatism.)
* July 2, 1941 - Heydrich's policy - not to interfere with any purges initiated by local elements. Initial massacres - pogroms - to be done by locals - quote Graefe that it would be safer for the Jews in the ghetto - this was objectively true. Ghettos served to confine Jews so they would not be partisans. Killing of commissars and Communist Jews.
* June 27 - Himmler assumes personal command of two brigades of Waffen-SS - 11,000 men.
* Late June - Himmler and Heydrich go on tour - annoyed to find Jewish populations in Augustowo and Grodno unconfined - brought killing squads from East Prussia on July 3, 1941. Murdered 316 Jews in Augustowo and Jewish leadership in Grodno.
* July 4 - Blume arrives in Minsk (Sonderkommando 7a). Nebe asks why not undertaken executions of Jews. Nebe criticized - it was impossible to mention the garrison of a commando in a city without at the same time reporting about the executions of Jews. Reasons for "reprisal actions".
* July 8 - Himmler comes to Bialystok, unhappy at low death count (700 Jews burned alive in synagogue) and ordered more killed - another 1,000 were. (Competing with Stahlecker.)
* Genocidal killings start in Paneriai.
* July 11 - Himmler (to his Police Battalions) increased order to kill all Jews (ages 17-45) convicted of looting. (Giving blanket permission.) Himmler forbade public executions, photography (compare with Stahlecker), not allow sites to become places of pilgrimage. Pastoral care of participants, comradely evening gatherings, instruction on necessity of the measure.
* July 13 - Einsatzgruppe A reports that by July 8 the local Einsatzkommando (with the help of Lithuanian auxiliary of 125) liquidated 321 Jews - Lithuanians ordered to take part in the liquidiations - and subsequently 500 being killed per day. Started with intelligentsia, political activists, wealthy - from lists. (54 on July 4, 93 on July 5).
* July 13-15- Himmler in Berlin, meets some time with Hoess - Hitler has given the order for the Final Solution. Need to create Auschwitz.
* July 16, 1941. Hitler uses the Soviet order for partisan warfare as an excuse to exterminate anyone who is hostile. Within a week, Himmler quadruples the number of SS operating behind the advancing German army, assigning 11 battalions of Order Police. (But not in Lithuania?)
* July 17, 1941. Himmler appoints SS (for Lublin) Odilo Globocnik to be his deputy for the Wehrbauern settlement. July 20, Himmler flies for 3 day trip in Lublin. Agree on settling 50,000 German settlers in Zamosc. Concentration camp became Majdenek. Globocnik took up Himmler's vision - exterminate Jews then and there - bases extend to the Ural mountains.
* July 19, 1941 - Himmler assigns part of police to Bach-Zelewski of Russia-Center to comb the Pripet marshes (flush out Jews taking refuge there; July 29 - shoot male Jews; drive females into the swamps) and the other part on July 22, 1941 to Frierich Jeckeln of Russia-South (shoot all except those needed for labor). July 23 - reassigned 5,500 men from Order Police to North, Central and South.
* July 25, 1941 - Himmler orders the formation of auxiliary police units.
* Last week of July - Himmler gives order to kill Jews, including women and children, at Schepetkova.
* July 29 - Himmler visits Kaunas meeets with Hans-Adolf Pruetzmann, who gives him a three day tour that moves on to Riga. ("Resettlment" means to the next world.)
* July 27 - August 11 - on Himmler's order, all Jewish men, women and children killed in the area of the Pripet marshes.
* Himmler brings in the Order Police, genocidal leaders (Jeckeln, Globocnik) and gets personally involved.
* July 31 - Heydrich meets Goering in Berlin to get order (drafted by Eichmann) to move Jews from western Europe to the East.
* August 1 - Hermann Mueller reports that Hitler wants to be informed continually about the Einsatzgruppen, wants speedily delivered visual materials of special interest, such as photographs
* August 2 - Pinsk - all Jews killed - Himmler's order
* Hitler's decisions.

General goal of depopulation. Issue of the Slavs. Subjugation.

Kaunas army had Stahlecker fly down and reprimanded him and forbade killings.

Blume and Blobel pscyhologically not prepared for mass killings.

Pogroms - make feel that Jews are guilty.

Jews are getting what they deserve.

In the first week of the war, Stahlecker launched three pilot projects for killing Lithuania's Jews. He ordered Bohme to kill them along the border with Prussia, he assigned Hamann to lead a notorious killing squad of fifteen SS men, and with Šveiceris's help, he inspired Voldemarists and other Lithuanians to conduct pogroms. However, ultimately, Stahlecker was more interested in fighting partisans than murdering Jews. Evidently, he advanced his career by killing as many Jews as he could, but he wasn't personally intent on killing all of them.

Karl Jaeger was officially responsible for the Holocaust in Lithuania. But he learned that he would be killing Jews just a few day before the invasion; he did not show particular initiative or innovation; and he was remorseful after it was all over. He was just doing his job. Whereas in the first week of the war, his boss Stahlecker launched three pilot projects for killing Lithuania's Jews. He ordered Bohme to kill them along the border with Prussia, he assigned Hamann to lead a notorious killing squad of fifteen SS men, and with Šveiceris's help, he inspired Voldemarists and other Lithuanians to conduct pogroms.

It may be that Stahlecker's dynamic efforts and the Voldemarists' enthusiasm at Kaunas's VII-th fort inspired Nazi Germany's leadership to expand its objectives. In March, 1941, Hitler had warned his general that they would not abide the rules of war upon invading the Soviet Union, but would kill, without trial, all Communist commissars and Communist Jews. Upon entering any city, the Einsatzgruppen were expected to massacre Jews, if possible, by allowing or inspiring local pogroms. On July 4, Blume was reprimanded for not doing so. Even so, massacring hundreds of Jews was less than killing all of them. Judging from conversations between German and Jewish leaders in Kaunas, the purpose seems to have been to give Jews prompt reason to locate into ghettos so that they would be safe from the locals, and in the hands of the Germans. Also, Hitler emphasized punishing Jews for their misdeeds, in a word, Bolshevism, and pogroms by locals expressed with terror what Germans could execute by right.

Finally, ternary responsibility can be assigned to those who, like slaves, are forced to commit crimes. Even slaves get resources to sustain themselves. And so even slaves can choose to share some resources or show good will.

In studying the origins of the Holocaust in Lithuania, we have shown how to consider personal responsibility for such a social calamity. We can likewise investigate today who is personally creating our financial, environmental and political crises.

What sets Pyragius apart is his willingness to risk his life for the sake of killing off Lithuania's Jews. The Voldemarists were caught off guard when students in Kaunas declared Lithuania's independence and established a Provisional Government. On the night of July 23, 1941, Pyragius led the Voldemarists in a coup, which was purportedly against this Provisional Government, but was truly against the commandant, Bobelis, because after the massacre at Kaunas's VIIth Fort, he had stopped the killing of Jews, and because he and mayor Palčiauskas had delayed the Jewish ghetto by an entire month. We know that the Voldemarists acted of their own initiative because afterwards Jager chastised them that, if they ever did anything like that again, their heads would roll. Indeed, there is a document from the day before the coup where the German commandant von Pohl orders Bobelis not to allow any cleansing operations without his permission. From the document it is clear that its purpose was to help Bobelis keep the Voldemarists in line, for if any Germans had been urging them on, von Pohl would have addressed them directly. After the coup we see that the killing of Jews proceeded in the hundreds per day, and then thousands.

Who among them was the champion of genocide? We can analyze social networks to determine who belonged to the Voldemarists and what relations they had with Germans and Lithuanians at different positions in the spectrum of malice. We can discern their personal goals from their interactions with others. Zenonas Blynas was the leading intellectual of the LNP. His diary details his dispute with air force pilot Jonas Pyragius about the Holocaust. Blynas thought that Lithuanians had killed so many Jews that they had a right to demand a promise of independence. He also complained that the Germans only filmed Lithuanians as killers and never themselves, which made the killing seem dishonorable. Pyragius argued that killing Jews was an end in itself and thereby revealed himself as a true champion.

However, Škirpa's positions turned out to be unrealistic for Lithuania's fascists, the Voldemarists, who Škirpa relied upon. Škirpa was insistent on declaring Lithuania's independence even against the wishes of the Nazis. The first priority of the Voldemarists was to be on best terms with the Nazis and therefore they secretly betrayed Skirpa and founded the Lithuanian Nationalist Party, whose letters LNP appear along with the notorious Sicherheitsdienst on the permission slips which the Germany army issued for Lithuanians to bear arms. And the classes which they recruited Lithuanians for in Prussia in included instructions on how to sneak into Soviet-occupied Lithuania and prepare activists there to organize the killing of all Jews. One week before the invasion, the draft program for the LNP included the goal of deleting Jews from life. The Voldemarists hoped that by killing Lithuania's Jews they would prove that Lithuanians are Aryans, worthy of bearing arms, and at the end of the war, Hitler would grant Lithuania independence.

The first priority of the Voldemarists was to be on best terms with the Nazis and therefore they secretly betrayed Skirpa and founded the Lithuanian Nationalist Party, whose letters LNP appear along with the notorious Sicherheitsdienst on the permission slips which the Germany army issued for Lithuanians to bear arms. And the classes which they recruited Lithuanians for in Prussia included instructions on how to sneak into Soviet-occupied Lithuania and prepare activists there to organize the killing of all Jews. One week before the invasion, the draft program for the LNP included the goal of deleting Jews from life. The Voldemarists hoped that by killing Lithuania's Jews they would prove that Lithuanians are Aryans, worthy of bearing arms, and at the end of the war, Hitler would grant Lithuania independence.

We can thus search among not only Germans, but also Lithuanians, who was it that championed such a calamity, and why? We look for self-driven people, idealists who were pursuing a personal vision, and thus able to psychologically prepare themselves, but also others. They are learners who develop themselves with an endless cycle of taking a stand, following through and reflecting. Primary responsibility for an endeavor, good or bad, goes to those who lead such a culture by insistently wishing, by recruiting participants, and by articulating justifications. The true champions are those who sacrifice their own needs and interests on behalf of their cause. Such dedication, continuity and consistency is essential so that the endeavor takes off and does not fall apart. But who would champion the murder of all Jews, women and children? We thus analyze the personal goals of those in the official chain of authority, especially as that changed over time, but also other individuals in their social networks.

We note when resources were assembled and how they were deployed. The killings were ordered by Karl Jaeger, who led only 120 SS men, including drivers and typists. This was clearly not enough to guarantee a genocide. But Jurgis Bobelis, the Kaunas military commandant who led Lithuania's 800 partisans, did not protest this order, even though as an expert on military law he knew that it was a war crime. What is striking is that the killings were enthusiastically organized by Lithuanian officers, such as air force pilot Bronius Norkus, who at the start of the war happened to be on a weekend furlough from a Lithuanian unit in the Soviet army. The thousands of prisoners had been arrested by participants in the uprising led by the Lithuanian Activist Front. Perhaps even more heartless than the machine gunning of the crowds of men, without any pretense of trial, was the holding of women and children for days without water.

Himmler's personal dream was to lead Germanic warrior farmers in colonizing the lands East of Russia, a process that might take decades to displace thirty million Slavs. He thought in terms of deportation rather than annihilation. But on July 8, two days after the Kaunas massacre, he seems to be competing with Stahlecker. Himmler came to Bialystok and was disappointed with the low death count - 700 Jews burned alive in a synagogue - and ordered more killed - another 1,000 were. He met with Hitler, who used the Soviet order for partisan warfare as an excuse to exterminate anyone hostile. Within a week, Himmler ordered 11 battalions of Order Police to join the laggard Einsatzgruppen in Russia Central and Russia North, and he brought in the genocidal Jeckeln, who innovated sardine pack killings. Himmler also appointed Globocnik, a champion of genocide, to pursue his visions of settling warrior farmers. And yet Himmler's genocidal actions seem primarily motivated at currying favor with Hitler.

Hitler is certainly responsible for the overall tragedy of World War II and the
Holocaust. Yet, personally, he seems to have devoted his creative energies to military planning, resettling Crimea, and architectural fantasies, rather than tormenting Jews. He did believe in "the intoxication of murder" and he was a champion of murderous eugenics. But, pragmatically, in his racial caste system, it was useful to have Jews, because everybody needed somebody to look down on and somebody to look up to. Central to his vision was hating and punishing Jews and eliminating them from Europe. Yet Lithuania's champions of genocide may have opened up the possibility of killing them all.

Hitler - responsible for T4 - his belief in murderous eugenics; his sensitivity to what is politically possible; role of Jews in racial caste system; making money from Jewish emigration; not feeding Jews in East; testament of eradication of Jews; lack of creativity on Jewish issues; pornographic interest in Jewish suffering; willingness of solving by emigration to Madagascar, Lublin, Siberia; defeating Bolshevikism; taking credit for killing the Jews (?); last testament: focus on Jews, and his resolve that they should "pay for it"; focus on punishment of Jews rather than their elimination; elimination is not enough - but must be punished so that they feel remorse; push Jews outside of Europe; "the intoxication of murder".


He didn't believe Germans could kill women and children even as Lithuanians were proving that they could.

A third champion of genocide was the German Lithuanian double agent Ričardas Šveiceris.

Nevertheless, by this historical analysis, they reveal themselves as dedicated perpetrators of the genocide of men, women and children. As such, they were arguably more directly responsible than more famous and powerful Nazi German leaders.

In the first week of the war, Stahlecker launched three pilot projects for killing Lithuania's Jews. He ordered Bohme to kill them along
the border with Prussia, he assigned Hamann to lead a notorious killing squad of fifteen SS men, and with Šveiceris's help, he inspired Voldemarists and other Lithuanians to conduct pogroms. However, ultimately, Stahlecker was more interested in fighting partisans than murdering Jews. Evidently, he advanced his career by killing as many Jews as he could, but he wasn't personally intent on killing all of them.

It may be that Stahlecker's dynamic efforts and the Voldemarists' enthusiasm at Kaunas's VII-th fort inspired Nazi Germany's leadership to expand its objectives. In March, 1941, Hitler had warned his general that they would not abide the rules of war upon invading the Soviet Union, but would kill, without trial, all Communist commissars and Communist Jews. Upon entering any city, the Einsatzgruppen were expected to massacre Jews, if possible, by allowing or inspiring local pogroms. On July 4, Blume was reprimanded for not doing so. Even so, massacring hundreds of Jews was less than killing all of them. Judging from conversations between German and Jewish leaders in Kaunas, the purpose seems to have been to give Jews prompt reason to locate into ghettos so that they would be safe from the locals, and in the hands of the Germans. Also, Hitler emphasized punishing Jews for their misdeeds, in a word, Bolshevism, and pogroms by locals expressed with terror what Germans could execute by right.

Another champion of genocide was Vytautas Reivytis, the leader of Lithuania's security police who the Voldemarists installed after their coup. Reivytis led Lithuania's 5,000 police officers in the arrest of some 100,000 Lithuanian Jews, which is much harder than killing them. His orders issued on August 16, 1941 were in the name of Lithuania's police, which is to say, in the name of Lithuania, and on behalf of Lithuania. If they had been in the name of Nazi Germany, then some of Lithuania's police might have taken action to help Jews flee.

What sets Pyragius apart is his willingness to risk his life for the sake of killing off Lithuania's Jews. The Voldemarists were caught off guard when students in Kaunas declared Lithuania's independence and established a Provisional Government. On the night of July 23, 1941, Pyragius led the Voldemarists in a coup, which was purportedly against this Provisional Government, but was truly against the commandant, Bobelis, because after the massacre at Kaunas's VIIth Fort, he had stopped the killing of Jews, and because he and mayor Palčiauskas had delayed the Jewish ghetto by an entire month. We know that the Voldemarists acted of their own initiative because afterwards Jager chastised them that, if they ever did anything like that again, their heads would roll. Indeed, there is a document from the day before the coup where the German commandant von Pohl orders Bobelis not to allow any cleansing operations without his permission. From the document it is clear that its purpose was to help Bobelis keep the Voldemarists in line, for if any Germans had been urging them on, von Pohl would have addressed them directly. After the coup we see that the killing of Jews proceeded in the hundreds per day, and then thousands.

We can get evidence for the most extreme positions by relating them to the best documented positions, notably that of Kazys Škirpa, Lithuania's ambassador in Berlin, who protested the Soviet-occupation and led the anti-Soviet uprising. We have his 260 page memoir, which he wrote during the war, along with 110 documents he assembled, including 20 which advocate driving out Lithuania's Jews as part of the uprising. He was not personally antisemitic, but he understood that there could be no place for Jews in a New Lithuania if it was to be part of Hitler's New Europe. He reasoned that Lithuanians hadn't stood up to the Soviets or to Lithuanian Communists, but he might well incite them to fight Jews. In July, 1940, he started two myths which thrive to this day: first, that Jews had wronged Lithuanians, and second, that if Lithuanians wronged Jews, then it was simply revenge. These myths grew popular as Lithuanians grew ashamed of themselves for having accepted Soviet occupation and annexation.

In July, 1940, he started two myths which thrive to this day: first, that Jews had wronged Lithuanians, and second, that if Lithuanians wronged Jews, then it was simply revenge. These myths grew popular as Lithuanians grew ashamed of themselves for having accepted Soviet occupation and annexation.

Blynas thought that Lithuanians had killed so many Jews that they had a right to demand a promise of independence. He also complained that the Germans only filmed Lithuanians as killers and never themselves, which made the killing seem dishonorable. Pyragius argued that killing Jews was an end in itself and thereby revealed himself as a true champion.

The Christian position was similar to that of Archbishop Skvireckas and may be considered the baseline among Lithuanian leaders. Indeed, it was rather similar to that in place in Nazi-occupied Poland, which Heydrich's Einsatzgruppen had subjugated by killing 65,000 Polish intellectuals in 1939, and where Jews had been confined to ghettos near railway lines. Who was it who wanted all of the Jews killed?

However, Škirpa's positions turned out to be unrealistic for Lithuania's fascists, the Voldemarists, who Škirpa relied upon. Škirpa was insistent on declaring Lithuania's independence even against the wishes of the Nazis. The first priority of the Voldemarists was to be on best terms with the Nazis and therefore they secretly betrayed Skirpa and founded the Lithuanian Nationalist Party, whose letters LNP appear along with the notorious Sicherheitsdienst on the permission slips which the Germany army issued for Lithuanians to bear arms. And the classes which they recruited Lithuanians for in Prussia in included instructions on how to sneak into Soviet-occupied Lithuania and prepare activists there to organize the killing of all Jews. One week before the invasion, the draft program for the LNP included the goal of deleting Jews from life. The Voldemarists hoped that by killing Lithuania's Jews they would prove that Lithuanians are Aryans, worthy of bearing arms, and at the end of the war, Hitler would grant Lithuania independence.

We can get evidence for the most extreme positions by relating them to the best documented positions, notably that of Kazys Škirpa, Lithuania's ambassador in Berlin, who protested the Soviet-occupation and led the anti-Soviet uprising. We have his 260 page memoir, which he wrote during the war, along with 110 documents he assembled, including 20 which advocate driving out Lithuania's Jews as part of the uprising. He was not personally antisemitic, but he understood that there could be no place for Jews in a New Lithuania if it was to be part of Hitler's New Europe.

The Christian position may be considered the baseline among Lithuanian leaders. Earlier, the Finance Minister's brother, doctor Balys Matulionis, and the priest Simonas Morkūnas, had asked Archbishop Skvireckas to intercede. But the latter's efforts were tepid. He thought Hitler had some good ideas, and that Lithuania's Jews should stay away from Lithuanians, perhaps in Panevezys or Siauliai.

We note a spectrum of positions. As the Finance Minister of Lithuania’s Provisional Government, Jonas Matulionis, explained to the Chairman of the Board of the Union of Jewish Soldiers, Jokūbas Goldbergas:

The Lithuanians are divided on the Jewish question. There are three main views: according to
the most extreme view all the Jews in Lithuania must be exterminated; a more moderate view demands setting up a concentration camp where Jews will atone with blood and sweat for their crimes against the Lithuanian people. As for the third view? I am a practicing Roman Catholic; I — and other believers like me — believe that no person may take the life of another person like himself. Only God may do this. I have never been against anybody, but during the period of Soviet rule I and my friends realized that we did not have a common path with the Jews and never will. In our view, the Lithuanians and the Jews must be separated from each other and the sooner the better. For this purpose, the Ghetto is essential. There you will be separated and no longer able to harm us. This is a Christian’s position.

They are learners who develop themselves with an endless cycle of taking a stand, following through and reflecting.

We note when resources were assembled and how they were deployed. The killings were ordered by Karl Jaeger, who led only 120 SS men, including drivers and typists. This was clearly not enough to guarantee a genocide. But Jurgis Bobelis, the Kaunas military commandant who led Lithuania's 800 partisans, did not protest this order, even though as an expert on military law he knew that it was a war crime. What is striking is that the killings were enthusiastically organized by Lithuanian officers, such as air force pilot Bronius Norkus, who at the start of the war happened to be on a weekend furlow from a Lithuanian unit in the Soviet army. The thousands of prisoners had been arrested by participants in the uprising led by the Lithuanian Activist Front. Perhaps even more heartless than the machine gunning of the crowds of men, without any pretense of trial, was the holding of women and children for days without water.

We analyze the timeline by which events proceeded. From the report compiled by Karl Jaeger, the leader of the SS in Lithuania, we can see how the Nazi invasion of the USSR on June 22, 1941, and the Lithuanian anti-Soviet uprising the next day, were quickly followed by the shooting of 3,000 Jews and Communists held at Kaunas VII fort on July 4 and 6. This was followed by a 3 week lull, after which hundreds and then thousands of Jews were killed every day.

My goal, as a citizen, was to learn the extent of Lithuanian responsibility for the Holocaust. Given that I consciously choose to be a Lithuanian and a Catholic, then I should inquire whether there was or is something flawed or wicked in my chosen world view.

Often, it is supposed, that either some person with great power sets in motion a catastrophe, or otherwise it is the unintentional product of happenstance or anonymous social forces. I develop an alternative view where a calamity can result from even a minor character's personal leadership of social forces, but depends on that individual's persistent learning, and thus must be purposefully intentional. A person must not simply stand in the right place at the right time, but must actively and willfully go and stay there to pull on the relevant system of levers.

My investigation focused on a question, Who wished for the death of all of Lithuania's Jews, including women and children? My focus allowed me to photograph and scan through 25,000 pages from more than 500 sources.

We identify the core of the catastrophe. Lithuania's Jews were murdered by different perpetrators in a variety of actions. The most expansive were the more than 200 mass shootings of
the inhabitants of the shtetls, the Jewish communities in Lithuania's cities, towns and villages.

Often, it is supposed, that either some person with great power is responsible for a catastrophe, or otherwise it is simply a product of chaos and happenstance or some vague social forces. I develop an alternative view where a calamity requires leadership of social forces, and thus requires persistent learning, which must be purposefully intentional. A person must not simply stand in the right place at the right time, but must actively and willfully go and stay there to pull on the relevant system of levers.

Five years ago, as a citizen, and a Lithuanan, in the course of an online discussion with Grant Gochin, a Lithuanian Jew in Califoria, about the responsibility of Lithuanians for the Holocaust, I came to doubt what I thought I knew. I share with you a method that I developed for investigating personal responsibility for a social calamity, such as the murder in 1941 of practically all of the Jewish men, women and children in Lithuania's towns.

General assumption is that the person with official authority is responsible;
or nobody is personally responsible for a calamity and it is simply a product of chaos and happenstance.

The
alternative view of this presentation is that a calamity is a complex result of social forces that requires leadership of those forces, and thus requires persistent learning, which must be purposefully intentional. A person must not simply be in the right place at the right time; they must persist there.

Not chaos but a

Alternative theories - "chaos happens"; there are so many crazy endeavors out there and only one of them needs to actually happen. But the endeavors that do happen are actually very simple (like kill the Jews). In any event, it is very constructive, instructive to show who can actually be found responsible, to be looking for them and learning from what happened. We need to be careful that there could have been many such people, but simply some are more visible. Or as with Hitler - on a different time scale is responsible - put into place Himmler, Heydrich - and made the final decision - but after Lithuania.

Society endures calamities which are so horrendous, complex and chaotic that it seems no person could be responsible for them. Even so, I can investigate, for example, how responsible were my fellow Lithuanians for the Holocaust? According to historians, it was only in September, 1941, that Adolf Hitler decided to kill all of the Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe. By that time, one-third of all Jews in Lithuania had already been killed. A moral analysis distinguishes three degrees of personal responsibility: champions, opportunists and slaves. A major event such as a genocide requires a champion who risks and sacrifices all they have for the sake of this goal; who learns by a cycle of taking a stand, following through and reflecting; and who draws others into this cycle by wishing, recruiting and articulating. In Lithuania, such champions of genocide were police officer Vytautas Reivytis, double agent Ričardas Šveiceris, and air force pilot Jonas Pyragius. They were supported by dozens of opportunists who supported only part of this learning cycle - wishing, recruiting or articulating - and who participated for ulterior motives, such as advancing their careers. They certainly participated voluntarily, for it is not possible to force one to exercise creativity, as in organizing others. Slaves are those who are forced to commit crimes. But even slaves can show good will. We can likewise investigate today who is personally creating our financial, environmental and political crises.

Even so, I can investigate, for example, how responsible were my fellow Lithuanians for the Holocaust? According to historians, it was only in September, 1941, that Adolf Hitler decided to kill all of the Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe. By that time, one-third of all Jews in Lithuania had already been killed. A moral analysis distinguishes three degrees of personal responsibility: champions, opportunists and slaves. A major event such as a genocide requires a champion who risks and sacrifices all they have for the sake of this goal; who learns by a cycle of taking a stand, following through and reflecting; and who draws others into this cycle by wishing, recruiting and articulating. In Lithuania, such champions of genocide were police officer Vytautas Reivytis, double agent Ričardas Šveiceris, and air force pilot Jonas Pyragius. They were supported by dozens of opportunists who supported only part of this learning cycle - wishing, recruiting or articulating - and who participated for ulterior motives, such as advancing their careers. They certainly participated voluntarily, for it is not possible to force one to exercise creativity, as in organizing others. Slaves are those who are forced to commit crimes. But even slaves can show good will. We can likewise investigate today who is personally creating our financial, environmental and political crises.
