Hungary: Jewish group opposes statue of “anti-Semitic” official

BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — A key Jewish organization in Hungary is calling for the cancellation of the unveiling of a statue of a Holocaust-era politician who supported anti-Semitic laws.

The Federation of Hungarian Jewish Religious Communities said Tuesday that Gyorgy Donath’s support for the Holocaust made him unworthy of a statue even if he later became a victim of communism. Donath was executed in 1947 after a show trial based on trumped-up charges.
