This is true. And not just about Vilnius (Vilnius was the main center of Jewish culture and education) but other cities too which had a very significant Jewish population. I think this heritage of Vilnius should be restored and brought into light for educational purposes and, of course, tourism. Many Jews in Israel have their origins in Vilnius but many probably lack information and positive environment to go back and enjoy the place which once was home for their grandparents. More interesting and attractive museums, monuments, infomration, restoration projects in the Old Town and academic (or even school) studies is what is needed.
