E. S. The case of reinstatement of Lithuanian citizenship

The great-grandfather of the applicant was born in Lithuania in 1910. In 1929, he was issued a passport that certified his Lithuanian citizenship. The great-great-grandfather of the applicant was born in Lithuania in 1878 and was issued a Lithuanian passport in 1921. In Lithuania, he lived with the great-great-grandmother of the applicant (born in 1883) until their death in 1941. In September 1941, German officers arranged execution of 1500 persons of Jewish origin in Pestiniukai village of Krakes. The great-great-grandparents of the applicant were killed namely during the above-mentioned mass execution.

In 1930, the great-grandfather of the applicant left Lithuania for Argentina, because he felt unsafe in Lithuania and upon taking into account the situation in the country; he feared for his future and thought that if he remains in Lithuania, he would be possibly earlier or later killed by active supporters of ideas of anti-Semitism. Because of his origin (he and members of his family were Jews), the great-grandfather of the applicant felt permanent animosity as well as preconception in respect of him and members of his family.

After leaving Lithuania, the great-grandfather of the applicant remained for permanent residence in Argentina.
The mother and grandmother of the applicant were born in Argentina. The applicant was born in Argentina as well. All of them were citizens of Argentina.

After the assessment of the circumstances provided in the dossier, the Migration Department of Lithuania passed a positive decision on a restoration of citizenship of Lithuania without renouncing the earlier granted citizenship of Argentina in respect of the applicant (Dual citizenship).
