Jewish Group Condemns Far-Right WWII Remembrance in Hungary

BUDAPEST, Hungary — Feb 6, 2016, 3:57 PM ET

The Simon Wiesenthal Center has condemned a far-right commemoration in Hungary of a World War II battle in which speakers lauded a wartime pro-Nazi Hungarian leader.

A report on the website said a Waffen-SS veteran who was scheduled to speak at Saturday’s memorial in the city of Szekesfehervar did not attend for health reasons. The Wiesenthal Center said the event was “another blatant attempt to honor and glorify the perpetrators of the Holocaust.”

Last year, international criticism caused a foundation to cancel plans to erect a statue in Szekesfehervar of a Holocaust-era minister who helped draft anti-Semitic laws.

The Wiesenthal Center’s Mark Weitzman said authorities‘ failure to condemn the event, considering that Hungary is currently chairing the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance, was “an exercise in political and historical hypocrisy.”

    SIMON Wiesenthal Centre official Mark Weitzman blasted Hungarian officials at the weekend for not banning a neonazi rally in Szekes­fehervar.

    Plans to erect a statue to nazi collaborator Balint Homan were halted recently following an international outcry.

    “This weekend’s scheduled event featuring an SS veteran and neonazis followed by a concert is another blatant attempt to honour and glorify the perpetrators of the Holocaust,” said Mr Weitzman.

    “For such an event to be allowed to go forward without any condemnation in the country that is currently chairing the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance and has a law against Holocaust denial is an exercise in political and historical hypocrisy.”

    He pointed out that the mayor of Szekesfehervar had expressed concern in December over his city’s reputation.
