The Changing Perception of the History of Holocaust in Hungary
The perception of the history of the Holocaust in Hungary is changing by discovery of new data and facts within and outside the country. As more and more Holocaust survivors are leaving us, new publications, as well as new types of media make the subject more widely accessible. This also leads to a wider acceptance of Holocaust research and puts the Holocaust in its proper place in Hungarian history.
