    The Holocaust in Hungary

    March 2014 marks the 70th anniversary of the German occupation of Hungary. Prior to the occupation, Hungarian Jews experienced legal discrimination, and able-bodied Jewish men were subject to compulsory labor. Under the German occupation, Hungarian Jews were further persecuted. Many were forced to live in ghettos, or were deported to Auschwitz and other camps.
