Jewish Budapest – בודפשט היהודית

04.03.2009

Antisemitism and Holocaust in Hungary
—————————————-­—————————————-­—————————————-­—————————————-­——————————-
Video on the Jewish history of Budapest before the 2nd World War as well about the terrible lost of Hungarian Jews caused by the hand of Hungarian and German nazis.
Budapest is the city of famous Jewish and Zionist figures like Theodor Herzl or Hannah Senesh.

Videómat azoknak ajánlom, akik hajlandóak elgondolkodni, és apáik/nagyszüleik helyett is erkölcsi felelősséget vállani azokért a szörnyűségekért, melyeket a magyar állam követett el magyar állampolgárok egy része ellen.
A visszacsatolt területeket is beleértve, több mint 600.000 magyarországi zsidó legyilkolásához adtak közvetlen és hathatós segítséget magyar csendőrök, és a kormányzó szélsőjobboldali horda. Deportálások, Dunába lövés, törvényerejű kirekesztés, és leszámítva pár jólelkű embert, a nagy tömegek hallgatása jellemezte a magyar történelem legsötétebb korszakát.
Évtízedes antiszemita hecckampány, numerus clausus tette lehetővé a borzalmakat.
Karádi Katalin híres betétdalát Szenes Hanna héber nyelven írt költeményének zenés átdolgozása követi.
A képek egy látszólag békés, háború előtti Budapestet mutatnak, majd fokozatosan bontakozik ki mindaz, amit a hungaristák mai utódai nem csak eltagadnak, de amire talán még büszkék is.

בודפשט, עיר היסטורית ליהדות ההונגרית וגם להרבה אנשים חשובים בהיסטוריה הציונית כמו ב. ז. הרצל או חנה סנש.

Budapest 2000 – Jewish Quarter

 25.03.2009

The Jewish community in Hungary before WWII was estimated at 725,000. During WWII, 600,000 Hungarian Jews were murdered. Tens of thousands of Jews in Budapest were saved by the Swedish diplomat, Raoul Wallenberg, of blessed memory, who gave them false identity papers. He paid with his own life.
