'Double Genocide' in Lithuania
Yesterday's Guardian had an interesting column by Jonathan Freedland on the so-called 'double genocide' in Lithuania during and after the Second World War. It is a useful contribution to the discussions about moral equivalence, and the tendency to a broad use of the word 'genocide' with the consequence that it diminishes the horror and stigma of real genocides.
