International Conference The Holocaust in Hungary: 70 Years Later?


The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies and the Rosenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies of the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY) convened an international conference on the Holocaust in Hungary in Washington on 19 March.

The conference coincided with worldwide commemorations of the 70th anniversary of the Holocaust in Hungary.

The conference engaged international scholarly cooperation and presented new and emerging scholarship on the Hungarian Holocaust and its aftermath. Leaders in the field addressed a range of topics, including postwar Hungarian Jewish refugees, the Catholic Church, nationalism, anti-Roma policies, and antisemitism in Hungary since 1989 until today. Randolph L. Braham, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, CUNY Graduate Center, delivered the opening remarks.

Further information and resources from the conference, including the program, videos, speeches, and a historical FAQ, can be found on USHMM's website.
