REF: SECSTATE 99971 
 
We delivered reftel points to Darius Staniulis, head of the 
MFA's Human Rights and NGOs Division, on July 19.  He told us 
the GOL agrees it is important for countries to educate their 
citizens on the Holocaust.  He added that, although the GOL 
has not discussed this issue yet, they are certain to support 
such a resolution.  Staniulis added that the GOL also wants 
international organizations, such as the EU, to address the 
crimes committed by totalitarian regimes, i.e., the Soviet 
Union.  Staniulis agreed to pass reftel information to others 
within the GOL who have an interest in Holocaust issues, 
including an adviser to the Prime Minister and the director 
of the GOL's International Commission for the Evaluation of 
the Crimes of the Nazi and Soviet Occupation Regimes in 
Lithuania.
