Jewish groups call on government to remove alleged anti-Semitic writers from national curriculum
Six Jewish organisations and federations have called on the government to revise the national curriculum and remove four “anti-Semitic” writers from it.
The writers in question, Jozsef Nyiro (1889-1953), Albert Wass (1908-1998), Istvan Sinka (1897-1969) and Dezso Szabo (1879-1945) spread “the contagion of anti-Semitism,” the organisations said in a statement.
“It is unacceptable that they constitute an integral part of the education of Hungarian youth,” the statement signed by Mazsihisz, the March of the Living Foundation, Mazsike, the Hungarian Zionist Alliance, the Victims of Nazism Committee and the B’nai B’rith Budapest Lodge said.
