On the 75th anniversary of the Koszorús Action (whereby the deportation of hundreds of thousands of Jews from Budapest was blocked), the Ferenc Koszorús Memorial Committee and the American Hungarian Federation jointly organize a conference entitled The Fate of Rescuers under Totalitarianism. The main patron of the conference is László Kövér, Speaker of the National Assembly of Hungary. Csaba Hende, Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly of Hungary, opens the conference. Our colleague Gábor Ujváry has been invited to speak. The title of his lecture is Anti-Semitic Rescuers of Jews? (Bálint Hóman, János Makkai, Miklós Mester and Gábor Kemény in 1944–1945).
Location: Upper House of the Hungarian Parliament Building, Kossuth tér (Square) 1–3, Budapest
