BUDAPEST – Amid a backdrop of an increasingly powerful and virulently anti-Semitic political party, thousands of Jewish Hungarians marched in its capital Sunday to mark the 70th anniversary of the mass Jewish deportation to Auschwitz-Berkinau.

The march memorializing the nearly 600,000 Jews sent to the notorious death camps is a prelude to a Monday march in Auschwitz to Birkenau, to be attended by over 10,000 international high school students on Holocaust Remembrance Day.In a symbolic gesture of solidarity, the Hungarian Jews attending the Poland march will travel by train to Auschwitz on what is being called The Train of the Living.

All of the events have been organized and sponsored by International March of the Living.
