Siófok Holocaust memorial unveiled

A memorial has been erected in Siófok to pay tribute to a community of 500 local Jews who were deported to Nazi death camps in 1944, origo.hu reported. 

At the unveiling ceremony, the government was represented by state secretary for foreign affairs László Szabó, who commemorated the victims, saying the government was committed to the principle of zero tolerance for anti-Semitism. Ilan Mor, Israel’s ambassador to Hungary, said that “there cannot be too many commemorations of the Holocaust, since a vast number of people were sent to death from Hungary, too”.
