  • Mike Pasker (born as Mečys Paškevičius, September 26, 1901 – October 1, 1993) was a Lithuanian police officer who later immigrated to the United States and worked as an electrician. Born in Ukmergė, Lithuania, Paškevičius was a sergeant of the Lithuanian Security Police from 1941 to 1944, while Lithuania was under Nazi occupation. According to later eyewitness testimony, Paškevičius marched 100 Lithuanian Jews and killed them by shooting and/or hanging them in the Ukmergė forest in July 1941, and assisted in the murder of 12,000 other Jews during his time of service. Paškevičius fled to Germany in 1944. He moved to the United States in 1950 and settled in Chicago, Illinois. After moving to the United States, Paškevičius divorced his first wife, Ona, and remarried, to Hildegard Gertrud Kaese (1925–1980), whom he originally met in Germany. During his time in Chicago, Paškevičius worked as an electrician, and he changed his name to Mike Pasker upon his naturalization as a United States citizen in 1962. Pasker and his wife retired to Santa Monica, California in 1972. Pasker's Nazi past was first mentioned in a Lithuanian-language newspaper in Cleveland 1959. He was then mentioned by Tass in a 1960s radio broadcast, which resulted in an article in the Chicago Tribune. Based on these allegations, along with eyewitness testimony, the federal government filed suit in 1977 to revoke Pasker's citizenship, and he consented to denaturalization in 1979 after admitting to concealing his past as a Lithuanian police officer during his immigration. While living in Santa Monica, Pasker was the target of several assassination attempts by Jewish militant groups. In 1978, members of the Jewish Defense League picketed his condominium, and a gunman shot into his apartment on June 6. On December 6, 1979, his condominium was damaged by a car bomb. Pasker then moved to a different home in Santa Monica, before moving to St. Petersburg Beach, Florida, where his wife died on June 20, 1980.
