Hungary Marks
Deportation

Budapest (JTA) — For the
first time ever, Hungary
held official ceremonies this
week to commemorate the
deportation of 600,000
Hungarian Jews to death
camps during World War II.
The commemorative
events began with a
ceremony at the Central
Jewish Cemetery, where the
50th year anniversary of the
Hungarian Holocaust was
remembered.
A ceremony sponsored by
the World Jewish Congress
was held at the Opera House
here. Among those atten-
ding were Hungarian Presi-
dent Arpad Goncz.
Mr. Goncz told the au-
dience to remember the
"passivity of hundreds of
thousands of people, wat-
ching hundreds of thousands
of their fellow countrymen
marched away to death."
He also spoke of the
heroism of the "dauntless
few who did everything in
their power to slow down the
smooth operation of the
death machine."
The commemorative
events were at least partial-
ly organized in an effort to
bring Hungarian anti-
Semitism — both during the
war and in current times —
to the attention of the
Hungarian populace, which
heard little about the subject
during the years when the
country was under Commu-
nist rule.
The Communists had
discouraged all discussion of
the treatment of Hungarian
Jews at the hands of both the
Nazis and the Arrow Cross,
the Hungarian fascist party
that allied itself with the
Germans.
But plans to organize the
commemorations were not
without their share of con-
troversy.
Earlier this year, the
Hungarian Jewish commun-
ity was seriously at odds
with the government over
when to hold a day of mourn-
ing to mark the Holocaust
here.
The government had
originally wanted to com-
memorate the occupation of
Hungary by the Germans on
March 19, 1944,
A separate controversy
erupted when the govern-
ment allowed extreme
rightists, who were members
of a new political party es-
tablished by ultranationalist
Istvan Csurka, to serve on
the commemorative com-
mittee.
