Tongue-tied: National minorities banned from using their language in Lithuania
Poles in Lithuania say they are being persecuted for using their native language to spell Polish street names and even surnames. But authorities in Vilnius insist they are simply upholding the law. Almost a quarter of a million ethnic Poles live in Lithuania. Warsaw ruled the land for centuries. So nowadays in some villages the Polish amount to over 80 per cent of the population.
During the political elections in Lithuania in 2008, a party of local show business stars got elected to Seimas. Film shows how these stars are making oaths after which they lose their right to get honorariums for their activities as performing artists in concerts. The oath itself is being theatricalised by the ones making it (the text of oath is being forgotten; text is being followed by outside comments). It is not critics:
“I do not take the easiest path, I do not criticize politics, I bring to the daylight the facts that have already taken place. When the DJ is mixing some melodies nobody asks him if he’s criticizes the tunes while mixing. He mixes, because he likes it that way. I play just the same, only visually.”
What do an electric car, clandestine parties and a miracle stone have in common?
When the Internet Governance Forum met in September 2010 for their yearly conference, we quietly snuck out of the busy conference halls to meet with some people on the streets of Vilnius.
From an inventive kit that converts any old car into an electric vehicle, to youths that have converted an old Soviet ministry into a freedom house - we went looking for the initiative and entrepreneurship that puts Lithuanian people at the centre of Europe.
From global opportunity to local identity - this is what we found.
Passage to Freedom / Baseball Saved Us by Ken Mochizuki
Author Ken Mochizuki reads his award-winning book Baseball Saved Us about a Japanese American boy who learns to play baseball when he and his family are forced to live in an internment camp during World War II. Hearing about how his ability to play the game helps him after the war is over adds to this touching story.
Listening to the author read his story about Chiune Sugihara in A Passage to Freedom offers an even more dramatic understanding of the difficult decision that the Japanese diplomat made in 1940: should he follow a Japanese government mandate and refuse visas to Jewish refugees in Lithuania, or follow his conscience and try to save lives?
