How many Holocaust memorials are there in Budapest?

Why are people in Hungary protesting at this Holocaust Memorial Site?

Are the protesters offended because this memorial is not big enough? It seems to be quite small, compared to the Holocaust Memorial on the banks of the Danube river, which is shown below.

Compared to the 5-acre Holocaust Memorial in the heart of Berlin, the memorial in the first photo above is woefully inadequate.  I blogged about the Berlin Memorial at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2010/04/07/memorial-for-the-murdered-jews-of-europe-is-crumbling-after-only-five-years/

Estimates vary considerably regarding the number of Jews from Hungary, who were killed in the Holocaust.  I previously blogged about this at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2012/05/04/how-many-hungarian-jews-were-murdered-in-the-holocaust/

Most of the Holocaust survivors who are still alive today are Hungarian Jews, who escaped the gas chambers of Auschwitz.

  1. You can never have enough.

    Similarly, it looks like there will be a never-ending supply of ‘Holocaust survivors’ — and the world needs every one of them.

  2. Anti-Semitism is the entirely n-o-r-m-a-l, reasonable and appropriate response to Judaism which is Jewish racism. Judaism is Jewish racism,. If anyone seriously wants to stop anti-Semitism, they must outlaw Judaism first.

    If one is “anti-racist, one must also be anti-Jewish and anti-Semitic. How can anyone possibly oppose racism but tolerate Judaism? It is sheer hypocrisy to denounce one but not the other.
