“There is a consensus that Jewish cemetery is not a proper place for a museum,” Baker, who holds a high position in the foundation granting compensations for Jewish property, told Vilnius journalists on Thursday.

“We do think that the site should include some presentation about the history of the cemetery, about the people who were buried there,” he added.

Baker is the board chairman of the Good Will Foundation administering compensations for Jewish communal property. Under a 2011 law, Lithuania is committed to paying over 37 million euros in compensations for property appropriated by totalitarian regimes.
