Jobbik: The introduction of a compulsory Holocaust course in higher education sets dangerous precedent

Thursday, May 28, 2015

From the educational point of view Jobbik feels it is wrong to introduce a compulsory course on the Holocaust in higher education, which could be counter-productive. The national party calls on universities and Hungarian education policy leaders not to give in to violent, liberal international pressure and resist the deprecation of their educational programs.

"Jobbik's opinion is that the planned introduction of the compulsory Holocaust course in Pázmány Péter Catholic University is counterproductive, professionally flawed and sets a dangerous precedent in higher education."

President of Jobbik Youth Wing Gergely Farkas recalled that the Catholic University introduced "the memory of the Holocaust” course into the university curriculum presumably by Israeli pressure.

"The announcement sparked conflicting reactions among university students; it raised the bar for students who consider the course unnecessary. As a result, it is quite possible that enrollment into the Pázmány Péter Catholic University will fall back in the near future." Higher education can't become hostage of certain interest groups added the Jobbik politician.
