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.
