Hungary held its first annual Holocaust Remembrance Day. The low-key event, which was barely noticed in the Hungarian media, commemorated the 1944 roundup of some 500,000 Hungarian Jews into ghettos, from which they were deported to Auschwitz. Attended by Jewish and government officials, the event was held at a Calvinist school in the town of Csurgo.
