Hungary has for the first time in the United Nations taken responsibility for the role it played during the Holocaust, and apologised, Hungary’s UN ambassador Csaba Korosi said on Thursday local time.
“In this form and on behalf of the Hungarian state, nobody had ever expressed in the UN the responsibility of the Hungarian state for [its role in] the Holocaust,” Korosi told MTI.
“We owe an apology to the victims because the Hungarian state was guilty for the Holocaust. Firstly because it failed to protect its citizens from destruction and secondly because it helped and provided financial resources to the mass murder” Korosi told the press conference in the UN headquarters in New York at the opening event of a series dedicated to the Holocaust.
