Hungary’s Jewish leaders welcomed a government proposal that the country’s schools annually mark April 16, the date in 1944 when the Nazis began deporting the nation’s Jews, as Holocaust Day. The proposal by the nation’s education minister is “symbolic and marks a new era,” the Association of Hungarian Jewish Organizations and the Budapest Jewish Community said in a joint statement.
