Viešoji įstaiga „Sugiharos fondas – diplomatai už gyvybę“ įkurta 1999 m. gruodžio mėnesį Lietuvos ir Belgijos intelektualų ir verslininkų pastangomis – prof. Egidijaus Aleksandravičiaus, politiko ir verslininko Ramūno Garbaravičiaus bei verslininko Freddie Opsomerio. Fondo iniciatoriai siekė sutelkti intelektines pastangas ir lėšas tam, kad Lietuvoje būtų įamžinti Japonijos diplomato Chiune Sugiharos ir Nyderlandų garbės konsulo Jano Zwartendijko atminimai. /

In 1999, as a result of the joint effort of the intellectuals and the businessmen from Lithuania and Belgium – prof. Egidijus Aleksandravičius, politician and businessman Ramūnas Garbaravičius and businessman Freddie Opsomer, the public institution "The Sugihara Foundation – Diplomats for Life" was established. The initiators of the foundation were seeking to unite the intellectual efforts and available funds in order to properly commemorate the name of the Japanese diplomat Chiune Sugihara along with the name of the Dutch consul Jan Zwartendijk. /

1999年、リトアニアとベルギーの知識人及び実業家は、「杉原(命の外交官)基金」を正式に発足させた。基金を開設したのは、日本の外交官杉原千畝の名を顕彰するために、英知と資金を統合しようとするものである。杉原の名は、オランダ領事ヤン・ツバルテンディク及び何千人もの欧州在住ユダヤ人の命を救った勇気ある外交官とともに、今の世代に人間のうちに潜む恐怖を思い起こさせ、また、友情と正義を思い起こさせるものである。

  • A little walk from Kaunas. Visit was when I was being repaired, but is allowed. Photos, too. It was 3 euros for adults. First 15 minutes documentary (Japan language version too) will show. Exhibition in Japan, description is written. I think if you go to Lithuania must go spot. When I went, English-speaking staff and staff was Japan. Which is very nice and polite. Just on the Japanese tour, had bought a lot of chocolate in the shop, so is popular as souvenirs. Linen products and honey was selling. Japan Yen in the shop of was writing staff, so are simple Japan yen.

Where to stay in Kaunas

Kaunas matches its artistic and fun-loving energy with numerous stylish boutique hotels. The one surprise is that many are quite affordable without sacrificing location. If you want something more budget-friendly, this youthful city has hostels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses, within the old city or close by. To experience both the city and the natural surroundings of Kaunas, opt to stay at one of the campsites, easily accessible from town via bus and offering tents or campers to rent at very reasonable rates. Be sure to book ahead when traveling to Kaunas: the city gets quite busy in the summer months, and the lack of big hotels means the small ones fill up fast.
