Israeli archaeologists announced on Wednesday that they have unearthed remnants of the Great Synagogue of Vilna, one of the most historic and treasured landmarks of European Jewry destroyed by the Nazis during their occupation of Lithuania in World War II.

Using underground detection radars and equipment, scientists searching in an area near a school in Vilnius found what they believe to be pieces of the synagogue that is widely considered to be the most important institution of Lithuanian Jewry.
