Hungary: Research institute director says genocide of Jews was 'action against aliens'

Sandor Szakaly, head of the Veritas institute, told MTI in an interview last week that the deportation of the first group – some 10,000 people – from Hungary during WWII qualified as an “alien citizens’ procedure” because the deportees were not Hungarian citizens.

Szakaly’s remarks created a stir in Hungary, with both DK and the Federation of Hungarian Jewish Communities (Mazsihisz) demanding that the director should resign or his appointment should be withdrawn.

“As the deported Jews were massacred by SS members, it was clearly a genocide committed by the national socialist regime,” DK said on Monday.
