Hungarian MP: Auschwitz ‘May not Reflect Real Facts’

An MP for the ultra-far right Jobbik party in Hungary has said that the Auschwitz concentration camp museum “may not reflect real facts,” the International Business Times reports.

During a discussion in parliament of a bill funding visits of Hungarian teenagers in the Nazi death camp in Poland, Tamas Gaudi-Nagy said the country’s schools should not be “forced to take up such an expensive venture” to visit site whose historical accuracy is, he believes, doubtful.

Jobbik, which won 17 percent of the vote in the 2010 elections, is Hungary’s third largest party, promoting an antisemitic, anti-EU and anti-Roma (Gypsies) agenda. Hungary has one of the largest Jewish populations in the EU (but a great deal less than there used to be…).

Gaudi-Nagy’s statements were attacked by the country’s ruling Fidesz party. Its leader, Antal Rogan, said: “Nobody has the right to question the Holocaust, the suffering and death of millions of people.”

Since its foundation, back in 2003, Jobbik has become known for insulting Jews and Hungary’s Roma population of some 700,000. It has founded the Hungarian Guard, a vigilante militia reminiscent of far-right groups that terrorized Jews and others during World War II.

  4. It's not just the far right that are Nazi fans. The government of Hungary refuses to try Lazlo Czatary, the murderer of more than 15,000 Jews because he is a national hero.
