histoPOD: Commemorating in Hungary
In our histoPOD podcast we speak to international experts to learn how the Holocaust is remembered in different countries.
Anti-Jewish legislation existed in Hungary even before the outbreak of the Second World War. When the war began, the country initially attempted to preserve its neutral status but joined the Tripartite Pact between Germany, Italy and Japan in November 1940.
What role did Hungary play in the Second World War? How did the culture of Holocaust remembrance develop over time, and what is its status today? These are the topics we are discussing with Andrea Petö, Professor at the Central European University.
