Co-organized with the Rosenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies of the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY), this international conference coincided with worldwide commemorations of the 70th anniversary of the Holocaust in Hungary.
The conference engaged international scholarly cooperation and presented new and emerging scholarship on the Hungarian Holocaust and its aftermath. Leaders in the field addressed a range of topics, including postwar Hungarian Jewish refugees; the Catholic Church, nationalism, and antisemitism in Hungary since 1989; and antisemitic and anti-Roma policies in present-day Hungarian politics. Randolph L. Braham, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, CUNY Graduate Center, delivered the opening remarks.
