Wyman Speaks at Vilnius Ceremony Honoring Righteous Gentiles


On March 12, 2008, Wyman Brent attended the annual ceremony in Vilnius, Lithuania to honor those amazing people who saved Jews during WWII. The speakers included the Israeli Ambassador, the director of the Vilna Gaon Jewish Museum and other dignitaries.

The final speaker surprisingly turned out to be Wyman Brent! Yes, he spoke at this ceremony even though he had no idea he would be asked to say anything. Wyman wasn’t even asked to speak until a few minutes before the ceremony was to begin. Needless to say he was nervous and had nothing prepared. However, he gave it his best shot and afterwards people said they enjoyed what he had to say.

Wyman was both honored and humbled to have the opportunity to participate. This experience was something he surely will remember for the rest of his life.
