  • Sunday 19 May 2024 - The Holocaust in Hungary


Sunday 19 May 2024 (10:00-13:30)
The Holocaust in Hungary

May 2024 will mark the 80th anniversary of the beginning of the deportation of approximately 440,000 Jews from Hungary, most of them to their deaths in Auschwitz-Birkenau. However, although these deportations began only after Germany occupied the country in March 1944, the Hungarian authorities were deeply complicit in the dispossession, enslavement and, ultimately, murder of the Jews living under their control, both before and after the German invasion. This remains a highly divisive issue in modern Hungary, whose present government has promoted a very different narrative of the Holocaust era.

In this session we will explore the ghettoization and deportation of Hungarian Jews in 1944. Martin Winstone will explore the current dangers of Holocaust distortion in Hungary.

We particularly welcome attendance from those participating in the Teacher Study Visit to Budapest in May 2024.
