Hungary 1938 and 2014, Political Parallels

April 08, 2014

PN Member Ulrike Lunacek MEP and Rui Tavares MEP, Rapporteur on the European Parliament’s Hungary Report, see parallels between Hungary in 1938 and 2014 and have invited Karl Pfeifer to read from his book “From Austria to Palestine and back again”.

Karl Pfeifer, an Austrian journalist and former editor of the Jewish community's newspaper Die Gemeinde, has been looking into the human rights situation in Hungary, antisemitism and antiziganism for 35 years. In his book “From Austria to Palestine and back again”, he describes his experiences in Hungary from 1938 to 1943.

The book presentation will be followed by a discussion with Bálint Magyar, former Hungarian Minister of Culture and Education.
