According to index.hu, about 300 people took part in the Tuesday's protest including former liberal members of parliament. Many demonstrators wore the yellow Star of David.
Organizers said they would keep a vigil at the construction site and by all means, they would stop the completion of the monument.
Protest organizers objecting the proposed memorial because according to them, the monument exonerates the Hungarian population from the burden of responsibility for the Holocaust. Although 70 years have passed since the Second World War, organizers are still demanding the collective stigmatization of Hungarians; they want to instill the feeling of guilt in future generation so that by reminding them to this unfounded guilt they can demand financial compensations from Hungarian society until the end of time.
