365/56

Holocaust memorial for the people shot into the Danube during the last few months of WW 2. Life was relatively safe in Hungary until the spring of 1944 due to the fact that of both the prime minister and the governor of Hungary were unwilling to participate in the organisation of the deportations. Only after the forced resignation of the minister and the capturing and detention of the governor’s son in concentration camp Dachau, genocide begun, but then with great efficiency. Holocaust in Hungary lasted actually only a few months but it was still time enough left to kill more than 600 000 people.
