Poet and social activist Sergey Kanovich, who lives in Vilnius and Brussels, is currently realizing his life's work - the “Lost Shtetl” project. The restored cemetery at Šeduva and the completely redone memorials at the mass killing sites near the town were presented to the public some time ago, an exceptionally beautiful and touching monument by Romas Kvintas was unveiled in the town’s center in October, and the cultural center of Šeduva was been restored. However, there’s still much to be done – the “Lost Shtetl” museum, which will focus on the history of Lithuanian Jewry, is also among Kanovich's plans.
