His supporters in Europe and the U.S. insist that the government of Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban is not antisemitic. But others point to his rhetoric, including a speech he made in Romania that his critics have called “pure Nazi,” and his policies in Hungary. Join Moment Senior Fellow Ira Forman, former U.S. State Department’s Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism and Hungarian-American journalist Kati Marton, founding advisory council chair of Action for Democracy, for a discussion about why we should be very concerned about antisemitism in Hungary. In conversation with Moment Book & Opinion editor Amy E. Schwartz.
This program is part of a Moment series on antisemitism supported by the Joyce and Irving Goldman Family Foundation.
