BUDAPEST — The Hungarian Jewish community held a memorial event in Budapest to mark the 70th anniversary of the occupation of Hungary by the Nazi-led German Army.

Wednesday’s commemoration was held in Budapest in front of the downtown Dohany Street Synagogue.

The event, sponsored by the Jewish community but open to the public, comes after representatives of Mazsihisz, the Association of Hungarian Jewish Communities, voted to boycott state-sponsored Holocaust memorial programs.
