According to AJC, the government hasn't addressed the demands of the Jewish community so far and the ongoing discussions haven't produced results.
According to the head of AJC Rabbi Andrew Baker, the current behavior of the Fidesz party is all the more surprising because it was the governing party that declared the year 2014, Holocaust Remembrance Year. The head of the organization pointed out that the Hungarian government has so far refused to change its position on any of the controversial issues, and common dialogue between the government and the Hungarian Jewish community has produced no result.
Jewish organizations in Hungary are concerned that the government wants to re-write history in order to reduce the liability of Hungarians in crimes committed against Jews during the second world war by trying to blame these crimes on the German occupation of the country.
Central Europe's largest Jewish community is terrified by the Jobbik party's electoral success and the Fidesz party's populist messages concludes the statement released by AJC.
