Hungarian Parliament Shouts Down Deputy Who Denies Nation’s Guilt in Mistreatment of Jews

Leftist deputies yesterday shouted recriminations at opposition deputy Endre Reicher when he told Parliament that not the Hungarian people, but only their former leaders, were responsible for the brutal mistreatment and murder of hundreds of thousands of Jews.

Parliament was thrown into an uproar when Reicher took the floor to challenge a statement by Anna Kethly, Social Democratic leader and vice-president of the body, that the anti-Jewish atrocities were “an unobliterable stain on Hungary’s honor.”
