Lázár also remarked that Prime Minister Viktor Orbán is expected to make an official statement regarding the monument later on Monday in which he outlines his position on the matter.
Lázár stressed that the purpose of the monument is to clearly engrave in stone and clarify to present and the future generations that "the deportation of Hungarian Jews - the Hungarian Holocaust - would not have happened without the German occupation."
However, there are other problems with the monument. Rabbi Zoltán Radnóti pointed out in his blog that mistake was made in the Hebrew inscription engraved in the memorial. In Hebrew, several terms are used to describe victims. In the inscription the wrong term was used, which referring to sacrificial animals.
Hebrew-speakers understand what the term refers to, but this term never used when referring to victims of the Holocaust because in Hebrew there is a separate term for Holocaust victims wrote the Rabbi on his blog.
Regarding the linguistic error Lázár noted that the nature of the error will be carefully examined and if it turns out that indeed a mistake was made we will ask for forgiveness and remedy the error.
