Panel II

Remembering the Holocaust In Post-Communist Hungary

This panel explored the ways in which the memory of the Holocaust in Hungary is framed, contextualized, and understood by individuals, institutions, and government actors in the post-communist period. Contemporary questions and issues of nationalism as it relates to historical “revisionism” of the Holocaust in Hungary today were also addressed.
