The leader of KDNP's parliamentary group said Christian Democratic politics is the best way to guarantee respect, dialogue and cooperation within the nation, the only way to “personal fulfilment and the nation’s prosperity”.
Marking the Memorial Day of the Victims of the Hungarian Holocaust, István Simicskó said in a statement that Hungary’s government was working to ensure the peace and security of Hungarians. Stability and consistency are particularly important in view of the war in neighboring Ukraine. April 16 was declared the Memorial Day of the Victims of the Hungarian Holocaust because the ghettoization of Hungarian Jewry started on this day in 1944, Simicskó said. “That shameful procedure led to deportations, and ultimately to the death of hundreds of thousands of our compatriots,” he said. The commemoration is to show respect to the victims but also a way to educate younger generations on experiences of the past, he said.
