Hungary is fully committed to the fight against anti-Semitism, and takes a zero tolerance stance against anti-Semitic manifestations, the State Secretary responsible for EU affairs at the Hungarian Prime Minister’s Office, Szabolcs Takács pointed out at the UN ceremony held in remembrance of the victims of the Holocaust.

SzabolcsTakács pointed out in his speech that Hungary is fully committed to the fight against anti-Semitism, and takes a zero tolerance stance against anti-Semitic manifestations. The State Secretary responsible for EU affairs at the Prime Minister’s Office called upon his audience to remember the tragedy which occurred seventy years ago, and cited images of moments of humiliation and depravation.

"The Holocaust was not the first genocide. And neither was it the last. But it was unprecedented, not only in the sheer magnitude of the number of civilians killed, but also in terms of its nature and intentions. It was the depravation of civilisation on such a scale that humanity was simply compelled to act and to react”, the State Secretary said, mentioning, as examples of the actions taken, the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the establishment of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance.
